Cricket comb hypnosis

Timeless songs soothe our senses 
as serrated wings slide side-to-side 
through doorways, under window wells,
and into eardrums,
chirping cricket comb friction
fusing with airborne brush 
and whir of wall fans,
sweet surround sound 
auditory hypnosis to hush 
our heavy heads, 
floating serenely
dream-ward  
on pillowed  
lilly pads.

    • Thank you! Crickets play a timeless soundtrack of my life, nostalgia infused in Nature by my mind. Did you grow up listening to cricket friction? Hope you are having a wonderful weekend, my friend, and keep up the excellent poetry on your blog!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

        I never had many interactions with crickets, rather it is the sound of house lizards that is prevalent above all in the summers. And for the rest of the time, the croaking of the frogs and the twittering of the sparrows make up for all the silence..
        Thank you.. I am glad. 🙂

      • Wonderful sounds all around, my friend! Thank you for sharing your memories with me. There are so many stories waiting to be told that sadly go unheard. WordPress has given wings to words over the ether of the internet. It’s a pleasure to be a part of this purely creative, ongoing thought process 🙂
        Cheers,
        Tyler

    The sound of crickets is great to sleep by — you describe it very well!

    wonderfully put, …. but I must say, I thought crickets made their sound by rubbing their legs together… not their wings?? I could be wrong, I was told this as a child…and my memory is shot! 😉
