    Israel: I can hear those crickets

    August sky
    the bus stop empty
    except for the sun

    Israel, I think a cocktailized world might be the best of all things.

    end of summer
    new shoes
    sharpened pencils

    Israel,
    how interesting your background is. I can see the empty school bus.

    first day of school
    traffic jam
    walking home alone

    silence, through the darkness
    the rage of katrina --
    those wind chimes

    Father priest,
    please, stop the divine service:
    the crickets are singing!

    evening bus stop
    returning birds drown out
    our conversation

    Forest at December's end.
    The wind is arguing
    with the bare woods.

    Vasile, again I look at your haiku and am drawn to it. There is much about it that makes me think of Emily Dickinson.
    Kutjim, your haiku resonates, literally and figuratively. Nice work.

    sounding of the bell
    along empty streets--
    cooling fog rolls in
