An Afternoon Stroll





She rolled up her hair as she walked through a garden patch.
Beautiful tresses of black silk were fastened in place by sticks.
The groggy green frog sat there croaking by the road side.
Cutlery unwound to click away on unsuspecting street food.





** An attempt at the Koan style of Chinese poetry

  2. I missed the frog-eating, but thought your words go well with the image. I could see her winding her hair. Lovely.
