Heard Around the House

The shower is running and running,
much longer than usual.
The washer is spinning and spinning,
for load after load.
A cell phone is buzzing, buzzing, buzzing,
text after text after text.
The cats are purring and purring,
loud enough to be heard across the room.

Yes! Our girl is home for
Spring Break!

    I am sure you just loved writing the word ‘spring’ as I know it has been so cold up there in the Northern Hemisphere. Enjoy the spring and the lovely company of your girl!! A lovely poem.

    Some sounds just light up the house and the heart.

    How true…having a teenager/college-ager in the home sure does create a sense of energy…even though they may not utter a word…there’s plenty other ‘busyness” to show their presence.
