Kuliglig

There she waits by her window, gazing up at the velveteen summer sky, searching for her favorite bituin, whisper-pondering Only the kuliglig replies— The quintessential tune of summer. Despite herself, she smiles, happy with the fact that the sound fills the night air, drowning out her own thoughts. Anything is better than silence. 04022012335a355 Filipino-English translation bituin—star kuliglig—cicada, or can also be crickets here

One for my favourites sweet lady... When you write romance.. the kuligligs dance ...The last line is so profound 'anything is better than silence'... deep

I just love the ending and I can definitely agree with your last line, even though we sometimes need the silence to actually really hear what is being said.. Okay I went a bit wayward there I think :D but that's me being wayward lol enjoyed this Missy :) *mwahugs*
