Poetry Month: Backyard Chorus 7 of 30

It's here!  It's National Poetry Month!  I'll hoping to write a poem every day this month.  I've decided to keep it simple this year.  I'm going to write about whatever strikes me each day.  I suppose it will be like a rollercoaster ride of poetry.  You'll never be quite sure what you're in for from day to day.

Today's inspiration:  a peeper chorus


Backyard Chorus
The sun slides,
slipping
out of sight.

In the gray-blue
of in-between
the chorus erupts.

First one peep,
then another.
Spring peepers serenade.

Until the chorus
echoes
in the dark night.
