An uneasy calm prevails on the house
Then she returns from her work.
A gentle tap at the door dozing in wait.
She smiles into his eyes.
He frowns first, then sighs.
The door all awake shuts them inside.
The screen of the TV bursts into hues.
The plants on the sills are all upright.
Waving the drapes wind joins.
The lights shine brighter
An easy peace settles in the home
Till the morning breaks.
