There is no sound I can name that is anything like the rain dripping upon a UPVC window sill. That is the sound that woke me this morning, I lay in what should have been silence and reflected on how noisy is my world.

Morning Sounds (NaPoWriMo Day 14) on YouTube.

Morning Sounds
The rain on the pane.
Tup, toptop, toptup, tup, top
Drips on UPVC sill.
Dingle, dongle brrrr
Phone shake
I’m awake.
Dirip, dirip
As I move
Phone in cradle
Gets a shove.
I won’t describe toilet flushing
Safe to say it’s water rushing.
Chubbubble, bubbashshubble
I fill the bath
with the water’s laugh.
Through teeth I pull oil
Until my guts recoil,
I don’t throw up.
Sonic toothbrush
Bounces around my mouth
Pluppapluppa pluppasplosh
Follow brush with mouthwash
“Ohhh!” I groan
Into my bath
In the house alone.
Peace never quiet
I laugh
