“Time Glass” – “I will challenge you again to write a haiku within 12 hours.  A haiku which is inspired on a photo and a prompt.  Today this prompt is Cicadas.”

Cicadas a capella
Audience of cats

    I really must find a sound track on u tube of cicadas. I hear all sorts of sounds, especially in the country, don’t know which is which. But I can imagine a cat on does it with a fly in her presence.: Nice work.

    A capella cicadas made me laugh! I’m still hearing them from time to time. Someone needs to give them the memo that summer’s almost gone!
