cicadas and crickets charm me in the night
when my eyes can’t seem to close to sleep
as my thoughts race through and about
with no cares of my body’s need for gentle rest

their cadence is not so dissonant
in the dark and cooling breath of night
as the solitary darkness provides the score
for this nocturnal ensemble

i do so wish to sleep and dream of my laying
on a dandelion, daisy and sunflower pasture
while hummingbirds drink of their nectar
and miracle ‘mariposas’ don their dance

with this reverie of a restful playground
i close my eyes to nocturnal aviary sounds
and through my open window, feel the titillation
of the cool night air as it sooths me finally to sleep
sweet dreams
