Reflections, Late at Night, 7/28/18

I choose to not sleep tonight
Instead, commune with crickets
Can they be counted, or differentiated?
Above the bay, the high clouds’ light show
Fills their gaps with flashes of orange
And why I choose not to sleep clear:
Life, I say,
Life! emerges in the day’s decline.
