A joyful noise.....

woke to
cicadas singing

the summer heat
into the day

Short and sweet poetry, Karen.

And as I always's better to be woke by the singing of cicadas than the buzzing of mosquitos (and that's why I don't write poetry!)

*grins at Alan*

It's worse when a mosquito latches onto your eye and tries to pull it out of the socket.
[we have pretty big mosquitos in Ohio]

Beautiful, Karen.

And I miss cicadas ... and fireflies ... and summer thunderstorms.

Karen from Mentor said...

Thank you Linda. :0)
Last night there were fireflies sparkling everywhere at the park. I got to enjoy watching them while listening to the frogs say goodnight to the day.

Then I woke this morning to cicadas welcoming the sun back.

Pretty good sunset/sunrise. Hey isn't there a song like that?

Short, and oh so sweet. This made me want to stretch, long and lazy, and listen to that noise.

KjM said...

Sweet, beautiful. You have quite the ear for this sort of thing, Karen.

And, clearly, a good way to begin a Monday.

I'm always baffled at how much you can share in so few words, Karen! I want to be like you when I grow up ;)
Love this poem!

Thanks for stopping in 謝俊銘

Stretching long and lazy is a great way to start the morning Laurita. I like to add in smiling at the day too. And then laughing when I see my hair in the mirror.
[but that may just be me]

I love hearing peepers in the spring and the cicadas in the summer.

*happy sigh*

Kevin it was a GREAT way to wake up on a Monday. Today? I woke up to a garbage truck.

Wasn't quite as poetic.

Karen from Mentor said...

Thank you ever so much Estrella.

You don't HAVE to grow up...
the young at heart have the most fun.

I love that noise...thanks for turning it into a poem and sharing.

Karen from Mentor said...

I like that idea Laura. Sort of like turning food into fuel.

To celibrate I'll have an extra cookie with my lunch.

*don't mind if I do*

Laura Eno said...

Don't mention cicadas with turning food into fuel...

*thinking of Indiana Jones and picking at monkey brains now*

I need a cookie to clear my palate...
