The Sound of Water in the Pipes

Life is now back to normal. It's Saturday morning, not quite 4:30, and I'm awake. I haven't made coffee yet, and may not for some time; there's a chance I'll go back to bed and try to get a little more sleep.

I hear, or maybe feel more than hear, the sound of the water in the pipes as the sprinklers outside do their duty and water the lawn. It's too dark now to see them, but I can sense, somehow, that they're on. It's funny, at this hour, not knowing whether it's actually a noise I hear or a vibration I feel.
