A Self Portrait in Sound
I am a symphony,
a harmonic cacophony –
the sound of laughter
of pages rustling, turning
of a camera shutter
and typing keys
the sound of a pen whirring over the lines
and ink scraped across a screen
a piano tinkling
the sound of a tear slipping down a cheek
of the muscles stretching into a smile
the sound of the ocean
the sound of the wind
the sound of flight
the sound of miles passing as the tires turn
a door opening
a dog snoring
the sound of differences accepted
of things unspoken
my mother’s joys
my lover’s sighs –
I am every note.
What would be some of the sounds in your self portrait?

by the way – you’re talented! well done you! 🙂
Thank you! 🙂 I appreciate it.
<3 Absolutely stunning. Some of mine…
Her soft voice, my lover
The twitter of birds inside, and out
Kitty purrs, and bubbly fish
A laugh, a sob, a dream, a wish
The feeling of warmth, of love
Of comfort, and of joy,
This is the feeling, this feeling is the song
The song is all around me,
it's the soundtrack of my life.
Thank you! I like yours, too. Especially the line ‘a laugh, a sob, a dream, a wish’ – lovely. 🙂
This is so beautiful. Thank you for sharing this.
