Cicadas - Time Glass Challenge - October 6, 2014

Here we are again with the sands runnin out of the time glass on Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.  Today's prompt word  is:


 It is tie for our 5th time challenging feature "Time Glass" in which the goal is to write a haiku (classical or non-classical) within 12 hours. The only thing you get from me is a photo, painting or another image and a prompt. Both have to be used for your haiku.
Here's the photo:


cicadas sing hyms
high pitched screeching song
the crow listens

    1. And I don't think it'll be the blues :-)

  2. I've been in a few congregations where the elderly ladies sounded a bit like screeching cicadas -- nicely done Georgia ! :)

    1. Me too and not only elderly ladies ... those squeaky voices really send shivers up my spine!

  3. What a perfect ku, Georgia...reads so beautifully and I can actually picture that darn crow listening.

  4. A very serene haiku Georgia ... unless the sounds of the cicadas ...


harmonious words ... like crystal clear water ... pure ectasy
