The Cicada in the Sumac

this morning I strolled in
to an amphitheater made of trees
a dull sound, so sonorous
buzzed through the leaves
chirps, gawks and trills
added accent, added depth
culminating to a symphony
of expressive, natural peace

who was this new visitor
that invoked such sweet melody
my eyes and my ears
wanted proof I could see
looking up to the branches
of the gangly sumac
I pinned his high locale

Oh hello, dear cicada
It’s been awhile
