Great sound haiku!

I really like the summer noon haiku, and its unusualness of 'defining sound from cicadas'; kinda slanting Basho and his penetrated rocks!

As I'm an extra special bitter man, living in Real Ale country, I have to say that your haiku is also quite something special.

I can imagine its power not just by being read, but read out live. Very very simple, but a lot of layers.

All my best to both of you for these children to be born!
