Father archimandrite,
give up vespers service:
a cricket’s chirping!
The night’s prodigy:
A star descending from skies
to listen to it
All the lamenters
remain speechless at a dash:
crickets are chirping!
The feast at height;
Listless to the street’s noises,
the Master Cricket
Midnight approaches –
The cricket’s sleeplessness
rise again the song
My dear nightingale,
where did all the crickets go
this specific night?
The priest’s murmured chant:
under the altar’s table
a cricket’s chirping!
Marked by emotion,
duet o the cricket’s sad fate,
the first white hoar frost
Long forgotten tomb…
At All Soul’s Day attending
only the crickets
During all night long
both the statue’s ears
overfilled with crickets
A city dumpsite –
the distant cricket’s chirping
resounds crystal clear
The concert is over:
stuck to the heavy boot’s sole
the soundless cricket
It begins to rain –
the cricket’s serenade
cut short once again
A desert house –
the ceaseless cricket’s chirping
crumbling the ceiling
to the cricket’s chirping –
the scythe sharpening
