Finding Merak – Terza Rima 3f

gloaming looms on the cusp of ebony
the scent of musk and rose buds fill my head
amaranth tendrils pierce through lace-trimmed trees

cool grass tickling, trembling in the breeze
cicadas’ shrill diminuendoes troll

For the Daily Terza Rima Stanza Challenge. As fortune would have it, while on a walk, I happened upon this young cicada fresh from its exuviae, having shed its former self. I think about how any layers I have shed over the years, and feel an affinity with the cicadas who sing with such intensity and verve.

yet suffer from a phobia of heights
with my feet, deeply rooted like a tree
