Saturday Mix – Sound Bite, 8 June 2019

This week we are hearing things, as we explore the use of ONOMATOPOEIA.
You will need to use the THREE onomatopoeic words in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our three words from Sarah this week using onomatopoeia are:

  • howl
  • munch
  • plop 

It had been a tiring day, and they were now looking forward to a relaxing. pleasant and calm evening. Finally they had some peace and quiet not to mention much needed privacy. The tent was cosy and warm, big enough to stand up in and divided into two parts, the inner sleeping quarters with camp beds and duvets all set out, and the outer section housed chairs, a picnic table and their cooking equipment.
As they munched on crisps and biscuits after a cooked meal, neither paid much heed to the howl of the wind outside, nor the sound of the rain on their canvas. It was quite soothing and before long, the pair were suitably drowsy to retire.
However, a resounding plop announced they had a leak in the outer canopy. Laughing, they simply moved a bucket across to the offending spot, then went to bed listening to a new tempo. It was quite an orchestration and they were soon fast asleep.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
