SUGGESTED USAGE:

古池(ふるいけ)かわず()()(みず)(おと)

furu ike ya / kawazu tobikomu / mizu no oto
an old pond / a frog jumps! / the sound of water

Today's suggested usage is not from my imagination, but from Japan's most well-known poet, Basho furu ike - old pond

  • 古池 furu ike - old pond
  • 飛び込む tobi komu - to jump in, plunge
  • 水の音 mizu no oto - sound of water
