The Darkness..

It’s 10:30 at night and as I lay here in the darkness of my room it’s amazing how peaceful it is . My house is quiet but yet it’s not .I can hear my husband next to me softly sleeping , And then the sound of my son and his friends quietly talking and laughing down the hall. Occasionally hearing the door to the refrigerator opening and closing. ..Boys always hungry. Off in the distance I can hear a train on the tracks rumbling along through the night ,surprisingly over the sound of the fan my husband cannot sleep without and now I have now grown accustomed too, off and on I hear the furnace turn on and occasionally the sound of Miss Abigail jumping around downstairs hopefully not keeping my daughter awake . Playing with something she found. Soon we will hear the coyotes has they make their way through our woods at night and the cry of an owl going after it’s prey . The night some times so quiet and peaceful yet active and alive. As I drift off to sleep I am content . And feel blessed of this simple life my husband and I have made.

  1. The evening sky ! 6:20 and it’s already getting dark . Storms are coming in so the clouds are  dark and moving in fast setting it to get darker even earlier ,  as mad as the skies look I think it’s beautiful .

Night. …

The peepers are out a beautiful  sound after days of Windows closed keeping the heat out .It’s a beautiful comfortable night everyone’s sleeping the house is calm .summer night’s what a wonder. No train whistle yet to echo through the darkness even the wildlife as settled in. So off to sleep I will go …Night everyone

 

 

Awake…

Laying here  in bed darkness surrounds  me ..except for the shadows on the wall from the moon . A train whistle  echos  as it passes through the night. Why is the sound  seem like such a lonely cry? My eyes feel heavy of sleep but my mind is filled with thoughts ..sleep I tell myself tomorrow is another day. Sleep and  dream of pleasant things another train whistle blows and this time gently  persuades  me to sleep.
