Sounds Delight

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – Prompt #287 – Sight, Sound, Scent
“As we look for comfort and connection during this rather unsettling time in our lives, let’s consider the words sight, sound, and scent. Choose just one, and express a comfort it brings you.”

Outdoors, birds chirp,
peck, squawk. It is
the way of Spring–hopeful
feeling. Though windy
conditions prevail, a beach
blooms with sounds of ocean
waves whooshing, seagull
sonatas of complaints,
your steps upon loose slats
of the boardwalk.

Indoors, running water
of showers, animals
snoring on couches,
and music ever available
for nostalgic past–tunes
you grew up on–new music,
classical pieces, jazz,
and blues. You can space
out on Soundscapes or sing
along with classic rock.
Meditate, and listen
to your heart beating.

About purplepeninportland

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.
