Summer Sounds

The Cicadas sing so loudly
Drowning out everything
Except the airplane 
Soaring, roaring overhead -

But the Dragonfly is so quiet
As it daintily alights
Upon a pinker than pink 
Lotus blossom
Then takes off in flight

In a nearby weeping willow tree
A Robin sing somewhere above me
His warbling song
An aural delight of myriad notes

But I came all this way
With bulky binoculars 
Hoping a Hummingbird
Or two - would appear
Just as I had planned

But they had other ideas
For I thought I heard them 
Snickering nearby
At my hubris for thinking
I could coax them out of the trees
Just for my benefit!

For Laura Mackenzie's "Sounds of Summer"  contest

    this is pure delight, Corinne!! I hope it does very well in the contest. THanks so much for seeing my blog and don't worry about all caps in front. Many magazines accept that style. I am not the norm on how i do my lines. I can't even figure out how to make my computer NOT do caps in front of each line and I have to go thru line after line, fixing the lines i don't want to begin with a captitalized letter! Luv, Andrea

    Corinne - I could see you standing there with a pair of binoculars hanging around your neck - Plenty of hummingbirds around here - I have a sort of special bond with them that simply amazes folk - Great poem, YF4L, God Bless, mj

    Working in N.Y.C. How exciting! I almost forgot that other people have to work for a living. Your poem has the Big Apple flavor. I'll take a bite. Love, daver
