Sounds of the Sound

Sitting on the bank of the Sound
I listen for the wonderful sounds
of nature all around

White-crowned Sparrows pour out song
Harbor porpoises splash along
Bald eagles soar high and strong
Sea otters cavort shores where they belong

My awe of God abounds


It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub and Victoria wants us to sound-off with our 44-word Quadrilles that include some form of the word sound. I used two.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. You’ve taken me to this magical place…..and yes. I so agree. Sometimes when I really look and listen and smell nature, I am in awe of this Creation!

  2. So perfect, how you took the sounds of the Sound. I hadn’t thought of that. Lucky you to be in such a beautiful part of the world, and lucky me for the same reason. I should say blessed, rather than lucky, for that is what we are. Praise God, all you works of the Lord! Daniel 3

    • I’m down in the Portland area where it’s just as beautiful. It’s been a while since I’ve been to Puget Sound, but it seemed too perfect for the prompt.

  3. I knew from the poem that you must be talking about the Northwest. I’d like to hear the sound of the sound again. Sure hope we can make it to the beach again this year. Sounds like a great memory

    • I actually saw some last summer from the train on my way to Seattle. I haven’t sat on the shore of Puget Sound in a long time, but I could hear those porpoises in my mind.
