"above silence" is a daring phrase and worth the risk.

Hi Bill - I've vacillated terribly since posting the haiku, but your comments have confirmed what I felt - that the fragment works. Thank you!

Hi Warren,

The deep silence of the canyon is made even deeper by the sound of the wren. It seems that this single sound emphasizes the absence of all other sounds. I like this one.
