Tit for Tat

The silence of the day
Broken by an errant car horn ~
The quiet of the morning
Splintered by a dog barking ~
The peaceful beginning
Violated by a hurly burly bustling day.

Convivial conversation breaks the evening gloom
And
Shared food revives the spirit
Then ~
Respite comes at the end of the day:
A glass of wine, a good book, silence restored.

  1. Sigh :). I’m already waiting for the end of the day. It sounds perfect!

    • I knew you would be right there with me! Now we both have to get to work……ugh.

      • Leaving now :(. Should be a challenging day with the boss just back from Vegas. He’s going to be grumpy when he sees all the work waiting for him. However, I told him before he left that he’d better not get grumpy with me when he gets to go away on holidays or I will walk right out the door LOL!!

  2. I loved this LouAnn! Every word, every image…

  3. Perfect capture of the rythm of the day.

  4. Ahhhhh…..lovely.

  5. Have you heard Sir Paul’s “At the Mercy of a Busy Day”? On the Chaos and Creation album.

    • no but it sounds tres apropos

      • I’m a big fan of Paul’s, but that Chaos and Creation in the Backyard album has some wondersul stuff. That particular song captures a feeling of modern desperation. I see, though, that you’ve added a cup of tea and good evening to it.

  6. Oh Lou. This is lovely.

  7. Oh yeah

  8. Yes. Wonderful.

  9. Don’t forget the marvellous restorative feeling of vengenace when you do donuts in the street on a Sunday morning…
