The Writer’s Soundtrack


Apparently I’m back. Sorry for the absence, life got in the way.

Peter over at dVerse set out the was talking about sound in poetry. He set a challenge to write a poem that let sound ring out. With my break from writing I’ve gotten a bit rusty (yet again), and ended up writing the sound of my trying to write. Go check out the fantastic entries folk have given for us to hear https://dversepoets.com/2020/10/22/mtb-let-your-words-ring-out/

  1. I love how you scratch of the rust from your writing… welcome back

  2. I really enjoyed this piece, I could hear every sound and it’s not often I see onomatopoeia implemented these days in literary work and poems. Very innovative, fun, and creative. Lovely work!

    • Thank you for your kind comment. The onomatopoeia is more than mildly influenced by the books mum used to read to me as a little kid, full of plods and drips and sounds. Glad you enjoyed it

  3. Welcome back – and glad you joined in. I’m looking at the pile of paper on my desk, scritched and ripped and crossed out and mostly rubbish – you’ve captured this sound perfectly.

  4. Lovely work done!

  5. It happens.

  6. ‘Sigh’

    Yes, I know how that feels, taking a break from writing. It takes a while for the rust to flake and the cogs to start turning easily, doesn’t it?

  7. The sound of writing, when silence won’t do.
