    I like the idea of crickets playing for a meal!

    Sounds like the crickets are the warm-up band at a kitchen concert! 🙂Evening Lull

    I wondered what happened to them after Buddy Holly died.

    Yuunagi Uluru

  4. I can very well picture that…

    How ironic. My hearing loss and constant ringing in my ears has left me only an occasional cricket chirp that I can hear. Gone is that steady melody that plays in the silence of night. But Mrs. Spadoman hears them all too well and has one in our bedroom that is annoying her. I’ll give her your advice and tell her to banish the critter into the kitchen!

    This is my new favorite haiku!!
    The time, the feelings it evokes.

    perfectly chosen
    words ♥

    Light and airy. Brings childhood memories of crickets just outside our kitchen door. My jar was always empty because I never could find them. Love it.

    We don’t have crickets where I live but I remember the choir of cicades in France (I’ve been there many times) – cicades and the smell of lavender… your haiku brought back happy Summer holiday memories, thanks! Have a nice weekend, hug from Holland
