The Children of the Night

Tropical Storm Beryl passed by our area today and as such drenched the area in rain.  This made the tree frogs happy, and I mean really happy.  This was the chorus in my back yard last night.


This reminds me of a night years ago.  I was fast asleep when my husband nudged me.  It was about 4am and I am not best pleased to be woken at that hour.  “Listen” he said to me, I looked at him, through squinted eyes.  He was sat bolt upright in bed.  “Listen” he said.  I listened.  The frogs were singing outside.  “The treefrogs are singing” I said.   “No” he said “they are singing in harmony, see that was a perfect chord”.   It is one of those moments when you wonder what the aliens have done with your husband and who is this laying beside you in bed.  I will never forget it.
