SCENE in the pen. 073

“Spring cicada”

May. Walking through a wooded area by the highway, I heard the sound of insects from the pine tree tops. There were that of spring cicadas. Their numbers are declining on the peninsula and I have heard them for the first time in the last five years. I kept stopping and listening the sound of the wind through the woods, the bird and them.
