A winter day at home
Tommy is working on a writing assignment...
Hal is taking a break from her studies and working on a puzzle...
I am here - just sitting for a while
and listening.
I can hear the hum of the fridge, 
the occasional sound of the furnace turning on
the clock ticking 
and the sound of my computer keys
but other than that, all is quiet
Outside the air appears to be still, though on second look, branches are waving a bit.
Little winter birds flutter to the feeders,
and then flit off to the pines to eat.
The dogs are asleep.
A sort of lazy afternoon.
A relaxing respite in a busy day.
It's like I can hear God whisper,
"Peace, be still"
