A translation of Basho’s  ‘old pond’ haiku

Inspired by

The old pond
A frog jumps in-
The sound of the water
– Basho

Falling water
Resonates through the mountains
Frog’s shadow
-Chèvrefeuille (our host )

Bitterness

For a young child, the first sip was usually followed by spitting it out, crying, and running away. It was extremely bitter. As a child parents, grandparents and elders in general tried to get it in you or on you. On you is usually on your skin as cure for some crazy rash. In you, to cure some GI related malady. Plus ,it gave you great skin from the inside out.
