A Midsummer Symphony

summer grasshoppers in NYC

Cicadas replace the sounds of birds on a summer morning,
Crickets and grasshoppers sing their nightly symphonies;
Sounds that could simply lull you to sleep.

You walk around,
you sit on the porch or the stoop,
and the liveliness of the critters becomes the background noise
of your environment.

Rattles, whistles, and chirps remind us that
no matter what, life goes on.
Life happens even when we can’t even see it.
