Again After Basho

My earlier glonk noise on Basho’s famous frog-pond poem has some twins composed in 2001 and here reproduced for your aural pleasure:

pond, old old pond
frog leaping in
in ripple sound

rippling sounds
from frog splash
a pond wrinkle


I find that this moves from a study of the qualities of “o” and “i” vowels and their reduplication to a tiny note of short vowel “a” that tinkles.

And so for day 867
