Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Haiku: On the Cusp of Autumn

on September 16, 2015

Lone cricket chirping
Reveille to my waking
Plays taps for summer.

    “Fall is a Southerner’s Reward for Surviving Summer.” A friend of mine who, like me, moved from Southern Cal to Tennessee, posted a beautiful pic with this phrase superimposed on it on Facebook. I copied it and tried to paste it in some of my WordPress comments but was unable to do so. The sentiment still applies, even without the picture, but would be more understandable with the beautiful fall colors in the background.

  5. Yes…I have never thought of cricket song that way.
    Thank you.
