–with apologies to Basho
The frog
done with jumping
into its ancient pond
extends its legs
and leaps
to the moon
splash!
and moon dust coats its legs
and bored again
it launches
to a methane-soaked lake
absent of frogs
and so on
and so on
out into the cold
until all the ponds
stretching back to the first
shimmer.
