    Yes, I can relate to this simple almost everyday incident, whether in the U.K., Australia, or in Sri Lanka!

    All of a sudden
    a pause in the crickets' chorus...
    listen to the frogs!

    So very well said, gK_!
    Vasile, we listen to each night's symphony.

    cicadas echo...
    in songs of night
    a dove

    everlasting concert
    my shadow pauses
    to hear the cricket song

    from streetlights
