Beauty in Sounds

The first wet splash of thick rain,

The crackling, rolling thunder that comes afterwards.

The spatter of drizzle on glass,

A gush of wind beating behind it.

A leaf’s crunching as you pounce upon it in the misty autumn mornings.

The silence in a snowy winter forest,

and your echoing footsteps that break it.

The purr of a content, pampered cat,

The yowl of a hungry one.

Tired humming,

Silent laughter,

the first greeting of a loved one.

A hot pan hissing under cold water,

the slam of a door after a heated argument,

the crack of a plate you threw down in frustration,

the sound of a knife cut into flesh.


I’ll keep quiet about that last one if you do.
