long live the crickets!! Love this Mama Zen!! :-)
Your gift - evoking so much, in so few lines. Loved this!!!!!!
I'm hoping those crickets hide well, I love their singing.
This poem sings!
I take it keeper of the geckos doesn't have a secondary role keeping crickets! A lot of fun. k.
luv all those sounds, fun piecemuch love...
Hmmm. I like the sound of the little geckoes at night, a chirrup rather than a grisly 'crich'. I confess I had not thought of the fate of the poor crickets! :)
It sings indeed and just the song I needed today, MZ!!
Love it...your wording definitely creates the sounds in my mind.
Chew on that, Ma Nature.
Recently back from Trinidad's Rain Forest where this played out daily! We root for the geckos though since they keep the house bug free!
dark little kids chant there, mz ~
Nice!We have crickets in the basement who become cat fodder when they venture upstairs, one by one. :)
We have our fair share of both creatures.. personally I'm on the side of the geckos.
This is perfect fun.
Nice...It's a fun read.
