monsoon night

a fruit bat circling
my cherry tree, the crickets
chirping rain happy...

Was the cherry tree illuminated by fireflies?

no, i don't know why, now that you ask it. but there were three bats and they flew even round and out under my armpits as i stood holding the rails of the first floor terrace of my house. i have two cherry trees daily feeding at least 50 birds, thousands of bees and ants, scores of butterflies and a dozen squirrels in my compound. you phone me when i am home and you can hear the singing of nightingales.
