Haiku Challenge: Loud & Silence

It’s haiku time again. The challenge dreamed up by Ronovan this week is to use the two words Loud and Silence. A much easier prompt, this one.
Here are my two variations on the same theme.
The painting is by Arthur Bowen Davies.

In the loud silence

hush-breathed aftermath birds pause

as you turn to leave.


So loud the silence

where river rushed birdsong thrilled

filled with your absence
