Daily Prompt: Good Fences?

DSC_0241Who are your neighbors? Are you friends with them, barely say hi, or avoid them altogether? Tell us a story — real or invented — about the people on the other side of your wall (or street, or farm, or… you get the point). 

Photographers, artists, poets: show us NEXT DOOR.


DSC_0232My little space is my haven and I am peaceful in here. My neighbors are Thai people and I’m glad to be next door to them. They are peace-loving and polite people; they don’t play loud music, no banging of doors and even late night parties. If they do so, only on reasonable and special occasions. I guess I found a perfect place to shelter my weary body and mind after the day’s work. Although they don’t start a conversation or even try to have one with me because of the language difficulty, I can sense they’re nice. No word but all smiles is fine with me especially I’m not fluent in Thai to explain or converse with them. So, I find that so harmonious because I want my home to be always in order and quiet. My neighbors say ‘sawadee kha/kap (hi/hello) when I catch them on the stairs on my way to work or back from work, at the laundry area or even when I see them at the nearest shops. For over 4 years of my stay in my apartment, I never heard any trouble caused by the nearby residents.

My neighbors are just perfect for me!
