Weekly Writing Prompt - Sounds!

Sitting here by an open window as spring blossoms into summer, I am enjoying the
symphony of crickets chirping outside. I hear traffic passing on a near by road, too.
It spreads out as the evening goes on. What are the sounds of summer where you are?

Take a few minutes, close your eyes and enjoy the rich mix of sounds of the season.
Can you go for a walk near a pond and listen to the funny noises frogs make? Or do
you hear the pounding of an Amtrak train on a track in Chicago. When I hear the distant
whistle of a train, it takes me back to childhood since there were train tracks only a half
mile away from our home. There's something comforting about the high-pitched noise. 

Describe the sounds you hear. Are they comforting or stressing? Do they make you think
of the past or look to the future? Try to relax and enjoy the cacophony of sounds around
you. Feel free to share some of your favorites in the comment section below. Happy writing!
