Cicada Summer

Cicada summer is closing

reprising songs from the long hot season

tymbal music permeates through the wilting bush

sea-water laps idly against the base

of the old mangrove trunk

watery pops bounce back into the bush

while the gentle zephyr whispers soft applause

rousing trees from siesta

to be audience to its passing

    Beautiful!
    I love the quiet waking in this poem. The gentle stirrings of nature throughout.
