hidden behind moon ~ haiku

hidden behind moon
sun’s light reaching to the stars
silent cicadas

With sun and moon as this poet’s choice of words, this haiku is my response to Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge #130.  Every week, Colleen offers two key words (or more accurately requests the use of synonyms for those words),
with the exception of the first week of the month, when it’s poet’s choice.

During the eclipse, all birds and insects went eerily silent.
