Rating: 3.3

first date
cicada and me

on the tree bark
a cicada shell
its song remembered

at the waterfall
trees rain down
cicada trills

Very appalachian in mood and content. I love the second one. Congratulations! Warm wishes, Sandra

three little gems, but the last one has the longest resonance, it leaves more unsaid. That's the hardest part of writing good haiku, but you are mastering the form. You deserve to be published with such fine pieces as these/

Ben, these are all a delight and congratulations for having them published on Sketchbook. I really like the last one and I can imagine vividly the waterfall, the trees, rain and cicada trills. It is picturesque and their trills add so much more. I will now think of a Cicada in a much more creative way.....10 love Karin
