Tranquil Chaos

The sound of crickets
 Is embraced by the strong wind
 Carrying their tune 
Among the grass blades.
What do they talk about?

 I wonder if crickets share their misery…
Or spread joyfulness?
 Do they murmur about how unfulfilling their lives are…
Or how peaceful and free 
They feel?

 Maybe a little of both.

 Do they have dreams and aspirations…
Or are they content with the stagnant flow of their reality?
 Is it stagnant at all?
 Maybe each day is filled with an exciting adventure
 That takes them to new internal heights.
 And maybe some days they yearn to be crushed
 By an enormous stump
 Wrapped in a black leather boot.

 Their chirps will never tell.
 Providing a comforting hum
 That soothes those 
Who take the time to listen.
 A sound like no other 
That promises warm summer nights 
And crackling fires
 Shared by friends and family.

 If they only knew 
The impact
 Of their powerful voice
 Regardless of intent,
 In a world full 
Of uncertainty.

    That's the thing about uncertainty. It's a fantasy filled with traps & misdirection. The resolution? Declarations. This is a very strong piece. Wonderful job!
