Decoy…

Day 5…
I’m deviating a little off the path and starting poetry month tomorrow…
My favorite bird, a Cape Dikkop was successful in distracting me a few nights ago before lockdown…

dikkop

He led me away
with a defensive pose,
that startled
my tranquil walk…

Watching me closely
from his hiding place,
I felt like
I’d been stalked…

He scooted past me in the darkness,
screeching as he went by,
acting as a decoy,
I knew that I should comply…

His bravado
was clear to see,
as he flapped
his wings wildly.,
and in the misty twilight
I crept away
politely…

In the afternoon…

of Day 2.
We took a quick trip to the Chemist and I couldn’t help asking…
“why is this happening?”
There’s a heavy silence all around, confusion in the air.

day 2

Lonely trees
line the avenues,
waiting for disquiet
to pass…
standing tall
in acceptance,
keeping comms
with the grass…
of the most
gentle character,
they wave in the breeze,
towering above us
in homage,
absorbing our unease…

Never before seen footage everywhere in the world.. .#ghosttown

Daydreaming…

“A daily dose of daydreaming heals the heart,
soothes the soul, and strengthens the imagination.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway

daydreaming

punctuation marks
across the skies,
i paused
a moment,
as they inscribed…
far-flung messages,
scrawled notes,
impartations
in bold strokes…
wordless scribbles,
and nonsensical signs… catch me daydreaming
when I’m inclined…
