quiet place

characterized by an absence

or near absence of noise 



It wasn’t until our Blue Gum plantation was

about half this size that I realised just

how quiet it was among the trees.

Quiet except for nature’s noise, that is!


The trees locked out all traffic noise,

what there was of it.

Silence only being broken only by birdsong

and the occasional thump of a kangaroo

escaping perceived danger from my vehicle.
