the cricket's song

August 29, 2011 Small Stones.
the cricket's song  by Teri H Hoover

Side One

Impossibly quiet footfall
In this beginning of late summer stillness-
hundreds of crickets
paint a translucent wash of color with their song
muffling the sadness
-in my heart
blurring the line
-of the seasons
dulling the edges
-of my fear
                   with love

Side Two

The sound of thoughts blending to footsteps
Awash in a buffer of blessing.
In this not yet autumn
the songs of hundreds crickets
fearlessly sing in the transition of seasons,
dipping into
the paint bucket of translucent color
singing all their might
