The Sound of Morning

Early morning quiet

Disturbed only by the singing birds,

The gentle snores of sleeping children,

And tick-tock

Of the kitchen clock.

Wallowing in the silence,

Sipping coffee,

Breathing calmly

While putting pen to paper.

Indulging in visions

Of dreams not yet realized.

Tick-tock, says the kitchen clock.

Time to wake the children

And end the quiet.

The refrigerator concurs.
