I write what I feel…



Post No. 934

15 August 2016



Silence blankets the air,

Lies heavily over the earth,

Only a lonely cricket can be heard –

Cr, cr, cr…

A Piet-my-vrou gives two soft calls,

Fading away…

I miss the morning chorus waking the world,

The birds impatiently waiting for the sun to open its eye

And the sky to lighten, brighten…

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  2. Thank you Ben and yours too! 😆


  3. It can be most disturbing when an expected morning sound — like birdcalls or the surge of the sea — isn’t there due to one being away from them. Was this a case in point?

  4. Yex that’s it. Not sure when I noticed the silence. There are now only a few soft chirrups – nothing like it used to be and only for a few minutes.cause? Maybe this last hot dry summer? Or perhaps a warning for what’s to come? Odd though…
