summer haiku... or not haiku d’été... oui ou non  – Shrödinger’s frog = la grenouille de Shrödinger

in the new old pond
Shrödinger’s frog croaks
and croaks and not




dans l’étang sans âge
la grenouille de Shrödinger
coasse oui et non

Richard Vallance 

Why did I repeat the word croaks in the English haiku? Think about it.  

I do not expect too many people to get this one, but if you do, great!
