remain invisible,
even at midday.

remain invisible? Even

midday, how
do frogs remain?

midday–how do,

A response to NaPoWriMo‘s suggestion to write in the hay(na)ku form (see this article about Eileen Tabios, its inventor), consisting of three-line stanzas, where the first line has one word, the second has two words, and the third has three words. And link to taste.

  1. Love the use of the looping structure that is slightly out of sync with the looping words to distribute and inflect the words differently. This is musical. It reminds me of a tap dance exercise I used to do where a step that has eight sounds is broken into five count segments over and over and has a different ring and feeling to it each time it gets distributed differently over the counts. Hard to explain. Anyway, so cool.
