A Poem by Dawn

The silence is deafening
the stillness of life
of no hustle and bustle
of human activity around us
outside our homes
as we look
out our windows.

But nature is thriving
the birds are singing
and the sun is shining
on a glorious day on earth.

The world has turned its self
up side down.

An interesting observation here. The entire world has been forced to alter its habits. One consequence is that the air has become cleaner. A lesson here, I think.

The planet sure is thriving without us. You just know it's going to be a great summer, and we'll not get to enjoy it. Roll on 2021, or am I being too optimistic.

Wonderfully and appropriately written dear friend.
The creature living in captivity and the one free to roam about have definitely switched their places and though it's beautiful it's still spooky( rightly said in the title)
Nice work 👍

Hello Dawn. Yes it is so quiet and there is no sign of human movement outside my home. Yet everywhere around nature is certainly thriving. The blossom is bursting, the flowers are blooming and the birds singing their little hearts out. To top it all the sun is making an appearance. A new perspective on life for those who don't notice mother nature. Surely they will see now? Keep well Dawn. I count myself lucky, have always appreciated the natural environment.

It is soooooo strange. I know that there are people out there, but they have all disappeared. I await the magician to wave his wand and have them all reappear, full of life and the joy of being alive. Enjoying the birds singing, the trees budding and the flowers bursting forth all the array of colors.

Take care my dear friend - Dave

and the birds seem to sing no matter what...but i wonder now, if even they understand the heartbreak humanity is suffering over this.
