There is something truly lovely about the sound of cicadas.

Although I think it's only one cicada that I can hear.

I first heard it a couple of days ago, I can hear it again now, and it's been slowly dawning on me that I have not heard cicadas since I moved here. At least I don't think I have.

This seems really odd. All my life there have been cicadas and cicada noise wherever I have lived. I'd think I was imagining their absence, except that now I can hear one, I've realised how much I've missed them.

Right now, in concert with the gentle snoring of my cat, it's a comforting noise that reminds me of all the life out there as well. I hope it's still making me happy in two hours though, because it is coming from right outside my bedroom window.

Things could get ugly.

Its a sound I like too. Means summer, longer days and fun. It goes with the sound of sprinklers - not that I hear that sound much these days.
