Childhood Family Life Memories Schooldays

Sounds of home

#Blogging101 #Napowrimo #Day18 #Home #Memories

Woken by the familiar sounds of childhood

the morning freight rolling down the Trafford Road

Clock radios alert you to the time as

Water runs in the bathroom

to the fizz of bath cubes creating bubbles


Thump of the morning news

follows letters on the floor

as the chirp of bluebirds

cuts through a chorus of cats


Local radio follows the sound

of Sausages sizzling in a pan

and the snap crackle pop of morning cereal

Crunch of feet following autumn leaves or virgin snow

on their way to school lessons.
