air full of sound

Written for:  The Twiglets #62 – “air full of sound”

July 4th at Longwood Gardens,
multi-colored fountains dance
to classical music filling the air

Nightingale filled the summer night air with music.

Sirens blasted through the night air.

The air filled with the sound
of staccato bullets fired in the night.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Why bullets?


  3. Those are some diverse sounds for sure. Sirens are annoying but bullets are scary.

    City sounds, for sure. Some are terrifying. Well done, Sara.
