The Pond and an Old Frog Haiku

haze on the pond
an old frog
there, or not there

FYI: My haiku was written in response to this historical literary analysis of the use of honkadori (allusive variation), A Brief Look at Honkadori, in frog haiku, the first of which was written by Matsuo Basho (1644-1694)

the old pond
a frog jumps in
the sound of water
