Hola, tu chaqueta azul

The three heavens are: eagle eyed, where the clouds walk with the wind; they are star struck, where the planets hover in wonder and they are ever watchful in God’s throne of judgment and mercy. The three earths are: fertile grounds, where wild donkeys run like lions;
centers of refuge, where wild rabbits build their and they are eternal, where there’s weeping and gnashing of teeth. The three waters are: bountiful blessings raining down from clouded waterfalls;
contrasting forces, giving birth to salted monsters and
and
a spring containing the water of life for God’s children. All of a sudden I started counting Very late one night while lying in bed inside my one bedroom apartment in Bloomington, Indiana, I started to hear a cricket chirping outside; it chirped eight times in a row then paused, then it chirped ten more times in a row before pausing, then it chirped nine times in a row before pausing, then it chirped twenty two more times in a row then it paused, then he or she chirped fourteen times in a row then paused, then it chirped nine times in a row then paused, then it chirped eight times in a row then paused, then it chirped twelve times in a row then paused, then it chirped ten times in a row then paused, then it chirped ten more times in a row then paused, then it chirped twelve times in a row then paused, then it chirped eight times in a row then paused, then it chirped eighteen times in a row then paused, then it chirped eight times in a row then paused, then it chirped eleven times in a row then paused, then it chirped nine times in a row then paused, then it chirped ten times in a row then paused, then it chirped ten more times in a row then paused, then it chirped seven times in a row then paused, then it chirped nine times in a row then paused, then it chirped eight times in a row then paused, then it chirped nine times in a row then paused, then it chirped twelve times in a row then paused, then it chirped nineteen times in a row then paused, then it chirped twelve times in a row then paused, then it chirped eleven times in a row then paused, then it chirped twenty nine times in a row then paused, then it chirped eighteen times in a row then paused. I was then too tired to continue counting; shortly thereafter I fell asleep.

My friend, there is something that perplexes me greatly.
