April’s stillness, ruffled by a hum of
The distant drone of a circular saw
The pressing winds of moving cars
The drift of a child’s laughter
Sound is a field of words

“Sound is a field of words”
And your poem is the perfect example of this.
Lovely sound poem.

I know all too well what a distant saw sounds like.
its ironical now that at least cars are quiet and nature has just magnified its presence. or maybe its just because of situation that it feels like this

Thanks so much!
It’s been lovely strolling through the last few months of your poems! Of the ones I read today, it’s a toss up between Listening Words and Linear for the title “My Favorite”. I also loved the way Silent Friendship and Destinations made me smile.

Lovely. I miss these sounds of an ordinary day. It is different living in isolation. But it seems to be doing a good thing in the midst if the corona virus siege.
I did. Hung a new back door that has been sitting around for to long
I hope you got some things done.
The hum of power tools was in my day. Had the day off from work so it was a project day.
Thanks my friend.
Wow. Speaks volumes. Especially right now

Really love it Elan. I feel like it beautifully speaks to each and one of us.
it’s my pleasure!
Thanks Joan. Yes, ruffled.
Thanks my friend!
Yes, that’s fine. Thanks.
I like the word “ruffled” here, as it could mean decorated or disturbed or both. I also like “The pressing winds of moving cars.” The sounds you describe are all things I heard on my walk yesterday, as if we live in the same neighborhood many miles apart. 🙂
