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.
