My Onomatopoeia (on-o-mat-o-pe-a) Echomimetic Words that Imitate sound...like a Booming Voice

a widening, an opening, of expanses, to spread across the scene
a widening, an opening, of expanses, to spread across the scene
across the grassy fields
across the grassy fields
sensuous flower's perfume the yard
sensuous flower's perfume the yard
sun's searing light
sun's searing light
bubbling brook
bubbling brook
a barn's decaying wooden frame
a barn's decaying wooden frame
darkening clouds, pushed by stormy winds and lightning's flash, in thunders, loud.
darkening clouds, pushed by stormy winds and lightning's flash, in thunders, loud.
trees all stand guard, erect in their stances
trees all stand guard, erect in their stances

sounding words




The rasping file, the searing burn,

the soothing wind, our hearts to beat,

Words all spelled, each speaks, to yell,

to write or pen, as to talk, or to greet.




A bell that gongs, a kite's high flight,

a flapping flag, in darkening night,

A telling of language, as a sweet dessert,

or sour as lemons, as wings take flight.




The hiding clouds, amid a thundering refrain,

a flash of lightning, in the falling rain,

In forested woodlands, a bubbling brook,

as shadows are casts, in sun dappled terrain.




Broad widening of plains, across open expanses,

all visual sights, delights that sing, a melodious song,

Apparitions, ghostly, pale, in moon light's shadows,

filter through trees, as each stand, so strong.




Poetic rhyming, as bells, all chiming, signs to indicate,

Unexpected change, each season's guilt, to vindicate,

Winter Springs to Summer and then slips, in its Fall,

the fond anecdotes, the records, to all state.




The smiling faces, fond memories held, all to be embraced,

as Chantilly hearts laced, in figures, each they are to grace,

Each precious line, is so rare, in etched drawings of its space,

to give credence, of mind, a proof, to find, its on cherished place.

What a beautiful array of crafted words and meanings. Your pictures compliment each line so sublime. Words are like raindrops that once caught on the tongue will expand and lay upon a poets heart and soul and blast out in song. Your work here is full of imagery and I followed and enjoyed each line till the end. Bravo, well done my poet.
