There are 3 reasons why crickets chirp; 1) to attract females; 2) to impress the female he has already attracted; 3) to warn other males to stay away. Also, you can tell the temperature outside by listening to how fast they chirp; the hotter it is, the faster they chirp and the colder it is, the slower. Just count the number of chirps you hear in 13 seconds and add 40 and that's the temperature. Your haiku must have been describing a COOOL rain. Such a science-driven haiku, my friend! Gwendolen

Yes, the crickets always do seem to know when it's about to rain, Kash. A lovely, modern haiku that made me smile. Thanks for sharing! Love, Carolyn
