Litany of Summer

The birds have gone quiet.

The night is buzzing.
How I love the buzz
of cicada song!

Every year I think
that I should record them
to play in the winter.

But each summer, I am
mesmerized by the now
and the buzz and never do.

Each summer adds another
verse to the litany
memories …
