Early Morning

Its 3:00 a.m.

The stars are twinkling

The half-moon is shining brightly

The sound of the numerous semis humming tires, traveling

on the nearby interstate

The freight train on its way to Portland, Maine or

to Lawrence, Mass

The barking of a stray dog

The meowing of an alley cat

Just some of the things that go unnoticed, and not heard by most of us, as the human populace, are in a deep and restful sleep
