SoCS – Loud


For Linda’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Loud

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “loud.” Find any word that means “loud,” and use it any way you’d like in your post. Enjoy!

How appropriate for this loud season. I am often struck by the dichotomy of serene quiet snow covered landscapes and the blaring loud displays of the holidays. Yikes. Well, to each their own. I know this poem starts with a rhyming pattern and then stops but c’mon it’s stream of consciousness, not polished. 😉

People rushing through the store
Loud decorations glaring
Loud holiday music blaring
hopelessly searching for something
to make their Christmas perfect

Mindlessly seeking like water running
in tiny streamlets freely flowing
across the asphalt parking lot
Deafened by the loudness of the season

they never even paused
did not see, or hear the quiet
the beauty of a tiny flower
struggling toward the light
from a crack in the sidewalk

The Good Stuff – Kenny Chesney
