The “thump thump thump” of Shiva’s tail against the floor.
The gurgles of the coffee pot just before it is ready in the morning.
The “munch munch munch” of The Cat as he eats his dinner late at night.
The puff of air brakes as my bus finally pulls up to the stop.
The “mew” of the foster kitten as he looks for his breakfast.
The clink of ice in a glass.
The muted thrum and quiet burst of an orchestra tuning up before a concert.
The giggles of my sister in the dark when it’s just the two of us.
The quiet pat of Shiva’s feet as she runs to catch up.
The vibration of a phone alerting me to a text message from a friend.
The crunch of snow on an early morning walk.
The long sigh Shiva lets out just before she falls asleep on the couch beside me.
The clanging of pots as my PH prepares dinner.
The soft purring of The Cat, in spite of himself.
The “pop” of a cork on a Friday night.
The satisfying tear of wrapping paper as a friend opens my gift to her.
What did I miss?
