SPLASH…frog played dead
I like that, my friend. Great haiku. 🙂
Poor kearu (Japanese for frog 😉
Reminds me of the time I was in Maui and saw a completely flat petrified frog in the middle of a dirt road.
Ow, how sad. Some driver was bound to drive over it for sure.

Well I hope that the frog swims quietly downstream so that Basho doesn’t see it’s demise!
LOL, I hope so too. 🙂
I can picture the pond – thick and soupy with that poor frog carcass on the bottom!
oh yes! I love your humour!
Thanks Freya. Glad you saw through to the humour. 🙂

Ooh, I’m afraid of frogs but I don’t know if I want to see it dead. 🙂
Sincerely, me too. 🙂
