closing ceremonies

There are cicada calls

down at the park,

the intermittent kind.

A long high buzz

followed by a gap.

High court in the trees

unwinds summer

with nasal drones

tight as a wire.

  1. Well captured, Janice! The juxtaposition of ‘long high buzz, gap and ‘unwinds summer’ is so effective in reminding us that autumn is just around the corner – but it’s ‘tight as a wire’ that seals the deal.
