Look for him when the cicadas fade
When the seedpods come unbound
When with every breath and every rain
The fan-shaped leaves fall down

Very nice! I like this a lot.
Thank you! I’m glad you liked it 🙂
Reblogged this on Heart voice.
Lovely words and picture (except for those of us with breathing problems).
Haha thank you, sadly again the image is not mine – I am in the middle of a city for the duration of the school year! Oh well, I am glad that you liked it!
I appreciate your visits and comments 🙂

Thank you, and you’re welcome 😛 You have a wonderful day, too!
In this piece you allow me to hear your words. This is quite unique – on reading and re-reading I hear in each line cicada, podplop, raindrop, leaf-flutter. Beautifully done. You are an accomplished poet.
I was thinking of the wood and field behind my house, and those sounds that I know so well! Thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂
Elizabeth, very, very nice job on the iambic meter. It flows sweetly!
Oh, this is embarrassing, I was doing iambic meter? Thank you very much, both for the compliment and for letting me know! I should check this meter out
Really beautiful, very evocative.
Thank you very much!
Lovely! This one has beautiful flow and imagery.
Thank you, I was hoping that a mere four lines would still be evocative!
The imagery if this is really striking. I really like it. Brevity can be so powerful.
Thank you, both for reading and leaving such a kind comment!
Beautiful. So beautiful. Love it. 🙂
Thank you very much!
I can hear the cicadas – one of my favorite sounds of summer. ❤
One of my favourites too 🙂
Ooh really? That means a lot!
I’m just commenting so I can click the “Follow” button. I didn’t see a “Follow” Widget on your blog anywhere that I could find.
Oh really? That’s not good. I noticed my Facebook follow button was a bit buggy, but the Follow Widget appears fine. If I cannot even see the problem that is true cause for concern.
Thank you for letting me know, and of course, for following! I appreciate it 🙂
As always Lilly you have wonderful ways with your words.:)
Thank you very much, autumn is my favourite season and as winter drags on I really miss it!
everything is there. everything is magnified.
That very simply captures what I felt – thank you for that comment 🙂
