Sweet Dreams

The wind howls outside the window...
The computer hums a serenade...
The clock ticks in perfect syncopation...
A soft squeak from a chair of leather...
In the distance, the traffic flows by on the highway...
My son sighs in deep slumber...
The keys tap a rhythmic sing-song pattern...
Somewhere a plane flies overhead...

The sounds of night time are all around me, calling me to go to sleep.
I have a list a mile long of undone things and unsaid words and worries left to make all right. But today I've done the best I can, it's time to put the day to rest.
Tomorrow we'll all start again, but now it's time to say, "Good Night."

What an awesome post. It is very poetic yet profound. I always like the comments you give at Ladybug's site and finally today had the epiphany that I could possible read your site :) (yes am abit slow, but I eventually come around) Look forward to reading more and catching up on what I haven't read!

sometimes before I sleep I like to step outside and listen to the world around me. Although my world isn't nearly as peaceful as yours...living in a city of 3 million people is a little noisier but, even the ambulance sirens or the sound of cars on the highway have a way of calming me.

Here the wind is beginning, and they say it will be a bit of a bumpy afternoon...

I'm glad spring finally made it!

Well, I am slow getting around to my favorites today. Yes, it is now Friday. It is time to go to bed but just a couple more pictures to play with. No wind. The birds are asleep and so are the cats. Now, soon, I will go as well. Have a good day.

Beautiful imagery, Lori. Been there myself a few times (too many things left to do, rolling around in my head when I should be sleeping). You have a knack for word-painting.

Ahhh yes... the sounds of night. Clocks ticking I find particularly soothing.
