Day 23- NaPoWriMo’18 – Sounds Can Make You Smile Or Go Wild!

Published 23rd April 2018 by viewsofpreethib

Day 23: And now for today’s (optional) prompt! Kate Greenstreet’s poetry is spare, but gives a very palpable sense of being spoken aloud – it reads like spoken language sounds. In our interview with her, she underscores this, stating that “when you hear it, you write it down.” Today, we challenge you to honor this idea with a poem based in sound. The poem, for example, could incorporate overheard language. Perhaps it could incorporate a song lyric in some way, or language from something often heard spoken aloud (a prayer, a pledge, the Girl Scout motto). Or you could use a regional or local phrase from your hometown that you don’t hear elsewhere, e.g. “that boy won’t amount to a pinch.”

Sounds Can Make You Smile Or Go Wild!

There are sounds that can make you smile,
There are sounds that can make you go wild,
Let me list out a few that makes me smile,
And a few that makes me go wild,
We all have a list of few hates and favourite,
Here is my list of both the sound.

The ones I hate and makes me go wild are,
The continues click click click sound of a pen,
The cham cham loud sound of chewing,
The tad tad banging sound on a table,
The pooom poom sound of the horn,
We might be named as the sensitive one.

Sounds that brings a smile on my face are,
The aaaahh’s , Ooohhhh’s and giggles of a baby,
The pitter patter sound of rain on the ground,
Melodious tin tin tin tin tin sound of a piano,
The psst psst psst sound of whisper,
These are few of the sounds I adore…
