NaHaiWriMo May 17th Haibun and Haiku prompt: voice

During early summer evenings we love to sit high above the ground amongst the trees on our deck. We will have desert and a “nip” while we are mesmerized watching the Chimney Swifts or Swallows. True aerialists, they feed high above the trees on evening insects, their twittering vocals sometimes shrill and keen. A true bug-fest that ends as the sun goes down. Then all becomes calm and the insects begin their song.
