It’s Too Quiet to Sleep

By Ruth Polk

Audible is my bedtime companion when my thoughts whirl out of control and won’t let me relax.

At night, my dog snores, snuffles, sighs, adjusts his bedding, and click click clicks his way from one spot to another in my room as his claws tap the floor.

It’s comforting to wake and catch him sighing in his sleep.

The reverse is also true. If I don’t hear him, I wonder. I strain to detect sounds of his rest. The more I wonder the more I wake.

The quiet keeps me up.
