Soft Smiles and Sunsets
by George Jeffries
smiling
is instinctive
now

though rare
it blossoms
on bright days

and I'll hold it
keepsake
in my mind

till night
till quiet

till again....

Sound Adventure
by Andrew Battaglino
Breathing in the cool autumn air
Just a robust, free spirit in the wild
Fearing tedium and longing for fun
Here I stand, truly in the sticks

Above me...

Tick tock of the clock
Voices coming from outside
Faint sound of rustling leaves
A pigeon cooing
Wind whistling through the eaves
Cars zooming past on the road

While Guitar Sings And Dances
by M. L. Kiser
My guitar sings, swings, dances
Those strings do-see-do; circle
Left, right, then form a big square
Tensions are released....

SOUND DREAMS
by Kim Rodrigues
without the whirl
of a happy sound
too quiet the fan

the dim lighting
lacking air
sans morning sun

thoughts stifled
with buzzing
the sweat pouring

breezeless tease
dreams of
Winters cloak

the loudness
of the tinkers
like bells

Cacophony
by Jesse Rowe
Breaking, bashing, creaking, crashing 
Pandemonic pounding pain
Reverberating bone to brain
Slamming, smashing, thrumming, thrashing
Mechanical chaotic grate
Echoing; can't concentrate

Scraping, scarring, jangling jarring
Bastard, broken beat becomes
Endless, dreadful demon drums
Maiming,...

Moonlight
by Roy Pett
Moonlight

softly shimmering

as cool breeze strokes still lake

reflections of weeping willows

swallows swooping, gnats darting, fish leaping

creating glistening ripples 

pure sweet melodic sound

with natural

moonlight.

Yirdaki Rhapsody
by M. L. Kiser
Yirdaki rhapsody;
no passing fancy.
Breath-bullet; 
spinning down its chamber of wood;
enchanting elixir, so very good.

Breathing sound-light; 
how it bleeds, so right; 
a healing vibration, 
echoing sensation;...
