Disturbance at dinnertime

she sails
into the restaurant
with her volume, voice and vibes
 
her huge waves
disturbing every conversation
 
her loud laughs
Interfering with existing atmosphere
 
her empty words
bouncing all over the room
 
her massive  presence
sharks the whole place
 
at last
she sails
out of  the harbor
that wasn’t hers
 
fresh wind blows
and everyone shows
it is  now our happy hour

    Very well written! It's just annoying when you have your quiet moment intruded on. You've brought it out so well. Keep penning the good work!

    very descriptive passage in a few words. I've experienced those happy hours quite a few times, after a new wind blew in;)
