calendula, lazy bugs, and … silence

click the thumbnails, to enjoy the pictures full size …

… and you should really click this picture for a much better view on those lazy bugs …



the first day without noise
is not a day of silence
it is a day of ‘rehab’
a day to unwind

but not real silence

that day
i’ll have to uphold
my right to ‘silence’

they’ll try to impose
all kinds of

‘no’Ā  is ‘no’


the second day
is really promising


don’t expect much from me on WordPress this and the coming weeks …
perhaps in 3 weeks i might find a little more time again …

  1. Loved the poem, Bert. I could feel the sounds of the previous days as a forest of jangling echoes carried in the silence of the reprieve’s first day. I agree. Hang tough and hold out for the second, when the ears have stopped buzzing, and the memories of noise have faded.

    You give the bugs no privacy, and the result is beautiful images!
