in twin--
the crickets'
midnight clicks

    long winter night
    half of full moon
    still in my window

    talk at kitchen
    a cricket shrills on
    without a care

    interesting syntax -

    "in twin"
    -- ----

    twin: (n) one of two, resembling another;
    (a) being two; (bio) occurring in pairs, didymous; (v) to pair, to unite or combine

    maybe two
    in harmony ...

    Suddenly...silence -
    only from the distance
    the echo

    fireflies sparkling
    above grass--
    trees wafting silently

    Soulmates apart
    still the seasons
    in my heart
