eye to eye
with the stone Buddha -
the small green frog



Auge in Auge
mit dem Stein-Buddha -
der kleine Frosch



This time Karl, our tiny Frog, had really out-done himself in
finding a place for his daily nap.

taking a rest
in the silken chamber -
yellow calla



Ruhepause
im seidenen Gemach -
gelbe Calla

making friends
on the first day -
welcome to Paradise !

Little Karl came by to greet his new friend!

We were sitting on the terrasse, enjoying some evening breeze,
looking over the quiet valley.

Suddenly the stone Buddha next to the flower bed started chanting
sutras:


whaa, whaa, Amida
whaa, whaa, Amida

We listened to the enchanted sound for a while,
then reality took over.

On a closer look, there was the originator of the voice:
Look again at the picture above to find him,
before you scroll down !



One of our tiny friends, Karl the Frog, had taken seat on the
Buddha's halo and chanted his nightly song!

But he did not like the flash of attraction and stopped his song,
as you can see, his throat is all flat now.

little green frog -
even your voice
the voice of Buddha



ishibotoke
sono koe ni naru
kaeru kana
