In and out – small stone 7

Inside my room
Click of heating thermostat
Creak of pipes, and steady tick of clock.
Rumble of stomach, scratch of pen and
Rub of sleeve on paper,
Reveals my inner world.

Outside the window
Dark flutter of a blackbird,
Great tit darts from swaying twig
Rumble of a bus, swish of cars
Invisible behind the hedge,
The world passes by.


Those of us who work from home can miss the opportunities to “get out”. Noticing the inside and outside this morning made me determined not to “stay in” today however gloomy the weather.
