Worthless Noise

Sharp winds bellow
Beseech panacea
No resolve
Instead tempestuous seas
Join chorus in poetic tones
Brooks gurgle
Fowl cackle
Night owls call
Flesh blabbers of it all

Oh might wind be still and know
Breezes are lullabies
Sing me to sleep in sweet dreams
Where Angels cradle me
In Harmonious accord

Dversepoets.com Today is National Thesaurus Day. Like I ever knew that before! Here are the instructions,

  1. Write a SOUND POEM which includes AT LEAST ONE from EACH of the FIVE HEARING CATEGORY SELECTIONS below: (reference the hearing words you chose in your post).
    bellow; clink; drone; jingle; quiver;
    clamour; dissonant; rip-roaring; tempestuous; vociferous;
    dulcet: honeyed; poetic; sonorous; tonal;
    blabber; cackle; dribble; gurgle; seethe;
    beseech; chant; drawl; embellish; intone

  2. Feel free to dip deeper into your chosen words by elaborating further from the Thesaurus with synonyms and antonyms

  3. AND/OR
  4. Simply write about the Thesaurus, as the above poets have – what it means to you; describe it, have fun with it. Let the synonyms flow, or antagonise with antonyms.

Hope I heard this right.

    A strong call to the storm to hush now ..really liked the thought behind this poem, and the way it is expressed, that need for the soothing, gentle breeze…

  4. “and the wind cries Mary” – that Hendrix line just popped into my head reading this – was soothed at the end of your stormy sound poem with this lovely line
    Breezes are lullabies”

    Beautifully done Mary! I love the contrast between the howling wind and the lullaby breeze of angels rocking you to sleep! Well done.
