  5. I like to walk on a summer night and hear the winding down of people's days as I pass by. The clatter of dishes being cleaned up, the smells of grills dying down and laundry done late, the squeals of kids thrilled to be out playing on the lawn after dark. There is common innocence about it all that just feels nice. Nice poem, concise, well chosen words.

  6. Lights in the windows, even if I see no one, is a comfort in knowing there is activity to defy darkness. Darkness of night, and darkness of mind.

    Re: Your comment about the differences between afternoon and morning light.... I agree, but I think I sense those differences because morning is cooler, afternoon warmer from hours in the day. Gives us a different ambient feeling. But I also see similarities the way I do between spring and autumn. There's a time somewhere in November here, where what's left of leaves on trees almost looks like the beginnings of spring. Oh, I'm ever the hopeful one for warm weather!!! :)

  9. "the ordinary ceremony of living", what a lovely way to put it. I too like to stroll in the evening and watch life close down for the day. We look, but we never know what's actually going on behind those windows. Joy, sorrow, numbness or oblivion.

    I'm sure your window's present a glowing picture of joy and contentedness even though the sorrow lives on.

    Thinking of you and yours and this puzzle of life xx
