Chirp Chirp

Everyone is asleep except me....
and it's quiet....
except for the chirping.  
After almost a week of hot weather, today it was warm and a perfectly comfortable 80 degrees.  
the doors are open (screens closed!)...
the night is pleasantly cool (but not cold!) and they're out...
the crickets. 
 Such a summer vacation sound.
I must remember to plant night blooming jasmine to go with my summer crickets.
I think the combination might make for some lovely dreaming and wishing upon stars.

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

I looove the song of the crickets, and love being the only one awake in the late evening too, something very peaceful about that ;-)
