Cicada Vows

I burrowed deep
When darkness came
And I could not see
To find my own

I will not wake
Till light returns
Till then I’ll grow
In dream-rich sleep

And now I blink
And draw fresh breath
Though light be half
What I knew below

I’ll blare at green
While a new dark forms
And thrive as I can
Till it’s time to dive
