Morning

There were cicadas hiding everywhere in this early morning. They continued their love song as darkness was still colonizing the jungle.

I managed to trace one of them. When I tried to move closer then it shouted, "The ears had been bugging me for whole night long. Please not you again!" It stopped abruptly, and left at the same time.

I went to the tree for a night story, which was expected to be a mysterious one. But he pulled up the curtain. I saw little spirits hanging at the tip of leaves.

Darkness varnishes when sunshine overwhelms; this tree told that a story about brightness is worthwhile than a night one.

Your grandma never told you never to go out in the rain?

What kind of car do you drive, Many Singaporean and Malaysian come here, find the cars very cheap, and buy big cars like Mercedes.

The cicadas song is loud isn't it? I much prefer the sunshine and the brightness. The second photo is lovely.

I love the cicadas even though they are noisy. The spirits at the ends of the leaves have made magic, I think

though noisy, somehow, the sound of cicadas seem soothing for me :) your 2nd picture seems magical, the lighting in it and the glow makes it look like touched by an angel.

You're a fantastic story teller of the jungle. When will the book published?

I've never seen one of those bugs but have heard them. I thought they only came out every 7 years. I must be thinking of something else. I like the dew on the leaves.

I like the face of the tree in your first photo, but the second picture really is magical.

Your morning hikes have inspired me many times to hike in the morning now myself.
