dVerse Poetics: Sound of Love

Walt is our prompter today and wants us to write about the sounds of love.  Tuesday Poetics: The Sound of LOVE

Sleeping Sounds
Soft snores,
guttural grunts and sometimes a growl,
snorts through the nose,
rumbling of the tummy,
an odd word murmured now and then –
I lie awake listening to you
And smile –
especially when you murmur my name.

    :)!!! Love this, Toni. Mine snores, which does not always make me smile. Thank goodness for earplugs. 😉

    Ah.. this is just the sounds you both love and hate… its the presence you do love, the warmth and the familiarity…

    Awwee.. sometimes I’d like to make sense out of those soft murmurs… they’re too intriguing! But then, as long as he speaks your name… nothing else matters. ❤

    That has been missing for a long time for me, personally. I am now hearing my cat snore and feel her listless warm body close to mine and it is such a comfort.

    The murmured name in sleepy tones sells this completely, Toni! Too good!

    these body sounds are the epitome of intimacy wrapped up in a lover’s name – very lovely!

    I smiled fondly too, all the way through – and especially at the last line. 🙂
