Dreamy moods at twilight
imbue us with peace
on paths of contemplation
we stroll down quiet streets…
*Dikkops guard their nestlings
calling to the night,
and when the load sheds
we return by starlight!
We are back into a schedule of power breaks during the day and night.
Having lived in Zimbabwe I know the feeling of shortages
and not having an abundance of goods available.
I remember having 3 chocolates to choose from when I was a child..
a crunchie, a lunch bar, and a flake.
It made me appreciate the shops in South Africa and overseas
where there is so much stuff, it boggles the mind.
There is something to be said about a pitch dark night though.
It was the first time I had seen a shooting star in years
and my old fridge has been defrosting itself automatically.
(Yes I do know that the modern fridges do that. 😉 )
Oh and the other thing we do is cook our food on a fire, it’s like re-wilding ourselves…
*Dikkop is a nocturnal bird who loves the night, also known as a spotted thick-knee.
