a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

My Favorite Time


I sit and listen
to the early farm sounds.
The roosters are crowing to greet the day
but have not left their roost yet.
Gypsy lays, snoring, after her early morning walk
her future still undetermined.
The house is silent.

Soon the sounds will hit me,
the tv blaring,
the people waking,
noise levels raising with each minute that passes.
I can only wait,
I can only dream
of the next quiet morning.

After all the noise of life, we appreciate the silence even more.
Enjoy your day.

Early morning and early evening are my favorite times of day also. I hope the very best for Gypsy.

Who doesn't appreciate a quiet morning?

I appreciate the quiet - when the TV is off!

It's a lovely poem.
