a mosquito sings
the song of his nature -
unrequited love

❧✿❧
Day after day I shall bless you, I shall praise your name for ever and ever.
Psalm145:2 


What's there to smile about today? Tomorrow's moon. August’s Full Sturgeon Moon will illuminate the sky this weekend.
The full moon will appear Sunday and reach peak brightness on Monday.
...
The sturgeon, a large fish common to the Great Lakes and other nearby bodies of water, is most easily caught during this month.

I finished viewing the series 'Rookie Historian' on Netflix this week and thoroughly enjoyed this song.
ENJOY THE MUSIC


ENGLISH TRANSLATION HERE
The whole world was asleep and only you shined
On that day I first saw you
It was the start of going to you

Do you know? All the times I missed you?...

An interesting perspective. I am a great favourite of mosquitoes, and certainly do not requite their love.

I never thought of a mosquito singing, but I will from now on. :)

Sreeja said...

That's interesting... brought a smile 😊

Joel (@Stranded Tree) said...

If mosquitoes didn't sting so much, I would agree with you! On second thought, maybe that's why their love is never returned. Hmmm
