Cacophony #FridayReflections

Early in the morning parrots screech outside my window.

While some might find it blissful I find it’s cacophony
In the middle of the morning cars honk outside the main road passing by the school that’s in the neighbourhood
Buses lumber up the hilly road and cause a jam, cars rev up and brakes screech
That’s cacophony
In the middle of the afternoon when I want to rest , school is out
And that’s cacophony.
After five when cars rush home
That’s cacophony
And in the middle of the night when all is quiet still
Whizzing motorbikes and racing cars with engines raised at crazy speeds
That’s cacophony too!



People feel that staying  in a high-rise would assure you  heavenly peace. Sadly, the higher you go the louder the noise and at times it’s really cacophony!

Sharing my thoughts on #FridayReflections hosted by Sanch and Corinne.

Have a great weekend !

A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!


  1. Interesting observation that the “higher you go, the louder the noise.” I believe it, though. If you fly in a hot air balloon, it’s amazing just how clearly you can hear conversations from the ground, below. Sound travels freely upward.
