|Slice of Life Tuesdays are hosted by TWO WRITING TEACHERS|
The whirring of the washer spinning,
the clunk of clothes tossing around,
and around in the dryer.
The breaths of the sleeping heartbeat,
lying at my side.
The sighs of the heartbeat lying across the room
trying to find comfort amidst illness.
The ticking of the wedding-gifted clock on the wall.
The cozy whoosh of warm air through the vents.
The sound of a wooden stretch,
our antique dining room table settling.
The click of a mouse upstairs in my husband’s office,
an occasional creak of his desk chair leaning back.
The hum of the refrigerator,
a reminder of lunches yet to be made.
The silence of clothes patiently waiting to be ironed,
book pages longing to be turned,
blankets wishing to be snuggled.
Sounds of routine,
