Earth Wonders


The muted sounds of yesterday

Are no longer silent

I hear them over the somber

Veil of the day

The chirps, the caws and the cheeps

Are all clamoring

For their share of my attention


Am I not their mother?

Do only humans have a lien over me?


In the macabre quietude

That has descended, unprecedented

I now hear the voices

Of my lesser children, and yet

I wonder

Are they the lesser beings?

Or are they the lesser of the two evils?

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (, by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
