there must be a sound
to silence the river chatter . . .
I expect the crickets know

    cricket's song
    morning silence broken
    pillow buries head

    river song
    the gush trailed by
    splashes of children and laughter

    stillness
    someone's footprints on white sand
    over night rain marks

    I too loved your haiku.

    A cat named Crickets
    breathing his last in my lap
    still purring

    middle of the night
    downpour ...
    drowning of the cricket's chirps
