summer grasshoppers in NYC

A Midsummer Symphony

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

As you walk around,
as you sit on the porch or the stoop,
the liveliness of the invisible 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.
