Peaceful moment

Loud country silence is heard. 

Distant sounds; insects and birds. 

Transition from day to night,

Air hinting of chill. 

Softly bathed in Autumn light,

The landscape is still. 
This peaceful moment was captured during a recent trip to Orange and Mudgee, five hours’ drive inland from Sydney.

  1. Beautiful picture. Love the description : “Loud country silence.” One of our sons, when he came back to visit us in our “Hundred Acre Winnie the Pooh Wood” after living some years in the middle of Los Angeles, couldn’t sleep because of the Whippoorwills and Quail sounds and the occasional Bob Cat cry.
