	SONGS OF CRICKETS

	By Kevork K. Kalayjian, Jr.

	strangers in our own 
	untranslatable paradise
	we wait for the discovery 
	of new colors and hues 
	to depict what we felt.

	Taking refuge in intensely personal emotions
	so extraordinary, that when we try to verbalize
	we sound like babbling toddlers.

	we have our daily routine 
	blanketing the deep stillness
	of treasures so rare 
	planted in each of us
	by the other 

	defying dimensions of time 
	place and destiny

	in the clear shiny night
	the stars keep on singing
	the sparkling songs of the crickets
