after the rains

after the rains

a chirping sound


I find a lone cricket

looking out the window



late summer

cavorting by the house

a cohort of crickets

    1. A little projection going on 🙂 I saw the cricket alone on the basement sill when I was outside where hoards of other crickets were leaping around the foundation walls…so I imagined that he wished to be outside as well.

  1. “A cohort of crickets” wonderful phrase. They do get around this time of year. The back field is seething with them, all running out of the way of the mower, even though the blade is too high to touch them.
