    Wonderful haiku!!!!!!!!!!

    I remember when I was doing volunteer work in a 2000 acre plot of land in Queensland, how those cicadas could overpower just about anything else other than fighter jets (RAAF Base Amberley)!

    But individually they do make beautiful gossip, and I learned a lot! :-)

    With a nod and thanks to former With Words colleague Maki Nishida for showing me around this famous shrine, and its secrets:

    __ Nicely felt, and of that feeling Debbi, this echo sounds; the crickets counting time_!

    as these sounds tell of time
    crickets toll
