I chose to stay at possibly the most remote neighbourhood in Singapore six years ago because I was already feeling overwhelmed by crowds on most days. When I first moved in, the nights were actually silent. But now the huge empty field near my flat will be a new residential area. Lots of digging and pounding these days.

    You manage to express so much in so few words. The last stanza is very wistful.

    Hi. That’s an interesting perspective on fences. Are you familiar with Robert Frost’s “The Mending Wall”?

    I hope you’ll have time to visit my A to Z blog. 🙂
