Thanks, Vaughn. A striking moment.

Do you like silent movies, polona?

Thanks, aurora. I've been experimenting with punctuation lately.

Interesting point of view,
we know that fireworks are noisy,
but when you say it's silence, we must obey!

At a sufficient distance, tikkis, they can't be heard; but the association with sound carries over the silence.

Me too, polona.

...and I like playing silent movie piano music. A few years back I found some folios for this from 1914 on eBay!

I really love Tikkis's take on obedience when reading haiku. That cracks me up! :-)
