Travel Taiwan Haiku - Cicada's Song of Love for Taipei


Taipei summer
cicadas blast away
their shrill

taipei summer heat
earsplitting
cicadas' shrill

Taipei summer
cicadas shrill with
passion for taipei

cicadas blasting
their songs
they too are overwhelmed
with their love for
taipei

Note, of course this is not all every street. I heard along Zhongshan North Road near to the Taipei Main Commuters Station. I also heard them in many parks i visited as well as a temple in Danshui, the harbour town north of Taipei.

Up to the stars;

That out of dust created man,
