Cricket's Love Song - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

cricket's shrill
courting love
each shrill digs
at my lonely heart
each shrill
an extra inch
of lonelines

cricket's shrill
a field of love songs
not even one for me
each shrill chills
this lonely heart

cricket's shrill
courting love
i wonder whether
she would come
for this late night tryst

    What a charming poem! In my part of the world, we think of crickets as good luck.

    Kind regards,

    Sandra
