My Evening

“As the day slows into the evening, It’s time to rest. I love to watch a good mystery, be it crime or paranormal. While solving the case, I slowly try to switch me off so I can sleep. What do you like to watch on TV of an Evening?

I wrote this story in answer to the following prompts:
Pensitivity’s three things challenge – Evening – Replace – smug
FOWC with Fandango — Method
Rag Tag Daily Prompt — Ace

My Evening

The evening is my time
Ace relaxation at its prime
Watching a mystery or crime
Until the eleventh chime

The sofa is my cosy place
With Lucy dog to embrace
My eyes wander to the bookcase
For weeks I haven’t read a trace

My books look so smug
I look away and shrug
Sip sleepy tea from my mug
And give Lucy dog a hug

A show starts a paranormal thread
Aliens, bigfoot, ghosts of the dead
Method a bound as theories spread
Mysteries replace the negativity my head

Then to my bed I creep
My thoughts still far too deep
I ace counting a million sheep
Until I drop off to sleep

Thanks for reading my friends.

    1. That sounds wonderful. I don’t blame you for not having TV. We got a satalite TV package. 400 channels and nothing worth watching on all of them most of the time.

      You must have good ears to identify people that way.
