Sounds of Spring

The doves coo
as they dance 
around the birdbath.

The quail
click and chuckle
calling young ones
to hurry to them.

The windchime
a sweet melody.

The hummingbird
whirs and chatters
at the lemon blossoms.

The gila woodpecker
makes knocking sounds
as he bores more holes
in the old saguaro.

These are the sounds I hear
as I sing my own song
to rejoice
in the coming
of spring.

     What are the sounds that remind you of spring?  Basketballs bouncing?  Children flying kites?  Dogs barking?  Can you write your own sound poem today?  Have fun.  Happy Sunday.


  1. We have mourning doves that nest in our courtyard every spring. I love watching the babies learning to fly. Thanks for the poem.

  2. Oh, I wish I could see your mourning doves. Thanks, Rosi.
