A high pitched, steady, beep - beep - beep
and the guttural growl of a grinding engine
greeted my morning garden stroll.

My view of the road blocked by
flowering potato vines,
I couldn't see the monster
as it inched down our country road.
I don't know what or why
it chose to invade the post-dawn peace
but gratefully, the tocsin sounds soon faded
and only the welcoming tweets
of small birds graced my space once more.

Have you posted a similar circumstance/poem to this one previously Tink? It felt familiar, but then this could be because I relate to outside/inside worlds. Either way I enjoyed the poem. In particular how the intrusive and relaxing qualities of sound create worlds.

all the best
