    Oh, so lovely. And I can feel the heat of a summer evening in those cricket voices too.

    I'm always a sucker for a poem that mentions dusk!

    Certain verbs can take away the power of a haiku, while others elevate them. Crawls is a great verb choice, and together with dusk, and I've seen it crawl, this is a great "movement" haiku!

    Me too, Alan!

    I could almost see the dusk creeping over each stem of wheat.
