A beautifully written haiku Maria, with quiet but lively imagery (if that makes sense...).., I think the 's' words, of course including 'silent', and the fact that owl's wings in flight are noiseless, makes it feel quiet - but lively to me... So I guess it does make sense lol! A vivid haiku that I enjoyed!!

Good Evening Maria. I'm sorry I missed this entry. This is a perfect Haiku in my eyes. The format is in true form voice and tone. I found it very traditional. Excellent work. I so bow to all of you who write in this unique format and style. Have a wonderful night. Well done

Same here Anne-Marie, but now my love affair with beautiful Japan has grown, I love everything about it, but mostly the people. I have a beautiful daughter in law who is Japanese. Thank you for the kind words
