Love it!One of my all-time favorite poems is also about a cicada:shell of a cicadait sang itself utterly awayby Matsuo BashoThanks for adding your poem to the mix!
No wonder she sings, indeed! Love those cicada-songs. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Diane and Irene. Love the Basho haiku!
One of my favorite songs of summer. Really nice poem!
The natural world is such a marvelous inspiration -- I love the "well of COURSE!" tone of this poem. ;-)
Thanks Michelle and Keri. I find it fascinating that you are a beekeeper, Keri! Here's a little poem for you:IF I COULD BE YOUR HONEYBEEfor KeriIf I could be your honeybeeI'd zip and zoom around each bloomJust like a little jet.If I could be your honeybeeI'd spin and dance from here to FranceAnd do a pirouette.If I could be your honeybeeI’d juke and jive around each hiveAll the way to Rome.If I could be your honeybeeI’d tour the world and then I’d flyBack to my beehive home.
