flushed ~NaPoWriMo Day 22

Every time I kid myself that I am ok

that I am past it

I get slapped upside the head again

with the truth

how can all the progress that I have made

get flushed down the toilet

with just one word from you?

I listen to cicadas sing

zing, zing, zing

the same song for hours

as bees buzz ’round the flowers

Ο

afternoon fades,

gives way to night

crickets join in

and play the chorus

Ο

katydids’ calls and answers resonate

I contemplate

the symphony of the forest
