This is a selection of my proximal sense switching haiku:

The first is visual – aural
This haiku has had many many incarnations. It started something like this:

see the man
in the shade of the tree
the sound of a garden hose

but that clearly doesn’t work

the sound of a garden hose—
in the shade of the tree
a man

and now it’s this

the tree hides him—
the tinkle of water
in the fountain

My next one arrived pretty much as it is. It’s a proximal visual – aural haiku

butterflies dance
through the window
Puccini
