The house is so quiet I can hear each clock click down its time. I hear the refrigerator cycling. I hear the lingering private conversations of our neighbors just home from work at the hospital. There is a gentle howling from the trees in the yard. Did you know birds still chirp at 2:44 am? Our cats think that the early morning hours are best for playing as they chase each other about the house. My husband lays snoring a gentle tune. The house is so quiet, it’s too quiet to sleep, so I stay up and write stories about random things and play senseless games on my phone before deciding to clean while no one else can see me. Good night house.
