It's Quiet Here Today

As In A Dream

The snow is falling
outside my window
and, in the silent house
the clock ticks
my life away
second by second,
minute by minute.
Down in the basement
laundry is swishing
while in the kitchen
plans for dishing
the days meals are made.
Outside traffic snarls
in the cold white delight.
The   sun struggles
to penetrate its light
through the thickness.
It can’t quite manage
to reach inside.
Inside life ticks along
in the dim house
to the measure of the clock.
One little chore after another
gets done,
as the days always pass,
pleasantly, peacefully
as in a dream.


  1. Without the snow, you could be describing how my house goes a lot of the time.

  2. Snow does seem to slow everything down.

  3. Great words ...
    We had a hard frost this morning, but no snow.

    May our days continue to 'pass, pleasantly, peacefully'

    All the best Jan

  4. I recognize that quietness ... great description.


It's lovely to know someone else is out there. Please leave me a comment...pretty please.
