Getting Listed at Real Toads

Today is another list challenge at Real Toads.  Kerry has given us a list compiled by the fun Timoteo.

katydid on grass

standing on the precipice
of our broken moon
dancing to calypso music
a soulful, cryptic tune
sung by crooning crickets
quickly overtaken by the
rapidly pounding drumbeat
created by raging heart
climbing into my throat
forcing fancy footwork;
mastering edgy steps
I believe I can fly,
thrust myself into space
creating my own big bang.

Yes, I know the picture is not really a cricket, but it’s the best I could do.  I don’t have a cricket, and thankfully the birds keep down the cricket population.

As luck would have it, this came out at exactly 55 words, so I’m sharing with G-Man as well for his Friday Flash 55.
