|The Empty Bench|
This evening the weather was perfect, so I headed outdoors to spend some time enjoying the transition from daytime to night time. As usual, I looked forward to the nighthawks to come out, one of my many favorite birds.
Cicadas we very loud this evening, and I did try to ignore the noise as I waited the arrival of the nighthawks. It didn't take more than ten minutes before I decided it was just too loud outside, and came back indoors.
A half hour or so later, my ears are still ringing from the cicadas concert. My bench will have to be empty till tomorrow, I have no desire to go back outdoors and listen to the cicadas.
