The Cicadas Are Coming

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Here, on the East Coast, we sit in wait for:
The cicadas are coming;
after seventeen years’
from earth to sky & back.
small bug engineers;
producing big noise
recycling years of waiting.
The cicadas are coming–
a rain of insects,
reminding by annoying
crunching sounds of crushing shells
cycles of living
after seventeen years of wait.

Our Lady
