Sounds of the pond, in the night's stillness.

crickets... frogs and rain
a distant highway

I prefer to say a little bit more about content and form.
I mean the juxtaposition is well done. Pond (the pond of Basho, where the frog jumps?), the criquets (another traditional motive) and the rain (I remind of kus of the poor Issa about rain) are in a perfect position to the highway. The ku brings together nature and modern civilization.

Good example for kus!

First thought: too much. Second thought: but a good story. Very complex in the beginning, just an exact moment when my mind works on it.

(Why should it be easy for the reader, when it was hard work for the poet?)

Best wishes

Magyar, so much wonderful sound in the foreground and just enough in the distant background.

i'm reading two haikus here;

one resonating the other; and in the second the addition of a constant before the interlude of stillness

very nice

much love
