Haiku 2011/104-109

109
There is no silence
as silent as the silence
of angry lovers

108
and quiet returns
and you stand there listening:
there is no silence

107
a twig's sudden snap
a dash to new camouflage
and quiet returns

106
through the dark country
quiet night-time creatures roam:
a twig's sudden snap

105
take off together
and fly quickly together
through the dark country

104
from the setting sun
a plane and a flock of birds
take off together

Love the groovy recurrence in last line/first line as the days plow on. And I'm being completely sincere. Welcome home from le Midwest.

Thanks. I have wondered if/when anyone noticed/cared that I was doing that. I had assumed your complete sincerity! Though I did have one faithful haiku reader who told me that at first she thought I was just being lazy.

There will be some further Midwest postings in a day or two. . . .
