My go-to remedy for stressful moments, or when I am looking for some sort of creative inspiration is to hook up the dogs to their leashes and head out for a walk. They get lots of walks!

For me, an important part of being in nature is listening—listening to the sounds (noun) of nature, or even those of human activity that come to me in quiet. I’m blessed to live most of the year on the fringes of a small city, near a river and wildlife. I especially enjoy the sounds of all the various birds that entertain me in song. I could sound-off (verb) about the beauty of this part of the world for pages.

I have a sound (adjective) reason for sharing this with you today and ask you now to use the word SOUND in a poem, following the very fun Quadrille form, a poem that soundly (adverb) embraces exactly 44 words, excluding the title. Check out the dictionary. I found a plethora of ways to sound-off. Maybe you will even want to play with assonance, consonance or one of the many ways that sound adds beauty, texture or feeling to a poem.
