punctuated by crickets

This weekend we are writing ‘photo-shopped’ haiku, tweaking to make the difference between a good haiku (or tanka) and an excellent haiku (or tanka).
Chèvrefeuille says that we can ‘photo-shop’ a haiku (or tanka) into a vintage one just by retouching a small part, to give it the quality of a black and white or sepia photograph. He has given us an example of a haiku by Basho and taken us through the process of ‘photo-shopping’ it.
Our challenge is to “photo-shop” an autumn haiku by Jane Reichhold, which has been taken from her online version of A Dictionary of Haiku.
