WEDNESDAY POETIC ASIDE PROMPT – SOUND – 7-13-11 - 9 POEMS



1.      Onomatopoeia

Onomatopoeia
delightful word
if ever did I hear ya
clicking, clacking
quacking all that can be
dearest onomatopoeia
sound transcendent there to see


2.      Trill

In the glimmer, clammered
caw, in pennied rustle brilliant shimmer
sunshot whispered wistful gleam
crystalline, pure
solitary trill
trailing tendrilled chill
each vertebrae in turn
grazed as a cool fingered lover
shivering heart
swelling in wondered witness of
perfection's signatory


3.      BANG

BIG and COLOSSALLY UNIVERSAL
or
individually personally colloquial

BANG

starts
something
with
a


4.      First, Last, and In Between


First, wet, burbling, trembled inhalation
presaging that outraged-into-life-catapulted
wail

Last, sodden, deep chested, otherworldly gurgle
heralding that rocketing-into-shocking-dead
sucked-of-all-sound-silence

In between, simply noise


5.     

In sounds of silence
They whirled, tomorrows endless
Slowing as they heard



6.      The Whipperwont

Once upon a midnight dreary
Did ponder weak, and yes, weary
On the trilling of the whippoorwill
Whose promised joy sung out of
range, continuing others thrill, yet unheard
Desperately elusive still
In that midnight, chilled and dreary
Eyes reddened, aged and bleary
with the wait, the chase for joy, grown weary
Of the evasive whippoorwill



7.      On Satin

Come with me and lie
On satin sheets
Silent, satiate
Floating a single sigh



8.      Smack

In a clean quiet room
Locked within sanctity
Of self safe home
Cacophonous, the unexpected
Smack
Ricocheting rippled
Ever echoes


9.     

Giggles in the grass
rolling down the clovered hill
to the top again
