Ramblings 485


Ouf. Enfin. A break started

Today and it was well overdue.

These weeks having turned

Into months, and having felt

Quite interminable, have finally

Come to a well welcome stop.

So tonight, we turned the lights off,

And settled down to watch a movie,

Question of letting our minds unwind.


Cuddled together, happy in the moment.

A little while into the movie, though,

Some unusual background noise seemed

To be seeping through loud enough

From some nondescript direction,

Making us scratch our heads, really.

This went on for a little while longer,

And it was distracting as anything.

Then it became clear what it was:


Lilly, our cat, curled up on the couch...

I'm with Tom. This is a very pleasant, well-delivered vignette.

I like the surprise ending, the way you used the cat's snoring in the poetic narrative. I like the whole piece very much for the mood and atmosphere it sets.
