The clock ticks-then tocks.

The dishwasher hums.

A car heads home on the road outside my window.

I hear my inhale-my exhale.

Even Rosie has settled down for the evening, dozing lightly at my feet.


The house is quiet when I am the only human home.

  1. Stop this “slice worthy” nonsense, Erin. Every word you write always enchants or informs. You, my friend are a writer! Send your critic packing, you have me as a cheerleader. Now let’s get to today’s offering. Love the ying, then yang feel in the lines. It is a calming piece. Kind of nice to be in the midst of quiet at home, right?

  2. Isn’t it nice to be home for just a little while by yourself? I don’t want to be home alone forever–but a daily dose of quiet time home alone is very recharging for me.

    Very ‘slice worthy’. Keep them coming!
