As I sit here at home I am surrounded by noise.
Water splashing off wall of fish tank
Cat's feet plodding on the table, looking to be pet.
Hmmmmm,- Hmmmmmm, Hmmmmmm Cat humming in ear, purring contentedly.
Swish, swish, swish, Plat. Goes the bricklayer fixing the steps across the street.
Aruuum- Aruuum- Aruuum-Aruuum The truck mounted vacuum cleaner sucking the leaves from the street.
Slap, slap, slap. The helpers slapping their rakes, to push leaves into the vacuum.
Ah-ooooooooooo-OUCH. Cat scratches against skin. Back to reality.
