Sounds of Sunday afternoon – small stone 12

I am listening to birdsong on my digital radio,
While playing with inks and stencils.
I hear the sound of the kettle boiling,
The chink of china mugs,
Water pouring onto tea,
And your voice calls “Tea’s made”.

Today’s writing prompt – paying attention to the sounds we can hear.

Sometimes I work in silence, sometimes with the radio on, usually voices on radio 4, sometimes Classic FM, but today birdsong… Often I have the radio on “for company” – silence can feel lonely. The sound of someone in the kitchen making tea, conveys so much more than just the hot drink. Much appreciated….
