    First of all, wow! A great "aural visual" of sound and image combined. This is packed with atmosphere.

    I love that para-rhyme of 'lights' and 'slides' when I read the full haiku, great effect!

    And of course the assonance of the letters "i" add a genius touch too!

    One I would have nabbed in minutes for the Blo?o Outlier Journal. :-)

    I love hearing instruments practicing in the neighborhood, it really does lend a nice soundtrack to the natural world turning.
