"Soft Sounds"


I hear soft sounds. Can you hear them too?
I hear the soft sound of the sun
as she rises over the sleeping forest.
I hear chirps and tweets from little birds
as they welcome another day.
I hear bumble bees,,,,
humming as they go from flower to flower.
I hear wings soaring in the blue sky
I hear the soft sound of shadows
as they race between sun rays.
I hear the silent sound of the butterflys
as they dance before my eyes.

I hear bubbles all around me.
They want to lift me high, and take me over the rainbow!
The bubbles say "follow me"

I hear the soft sounds of flowers growing in the forest.
I hear them yawn and stretch.

I hear the sound of crickets singing in the night.
I hear the quiet sound of the moon as she watches us sleep.

I hear the soft sound of the stars
as they twinkle in the darkness.
Do you hear them twinkle?
I hear the soft voices of all my friends
when they wish upon a star.

I hear the soft sound of the wind
as she brings the rain clouds.
The pitter patter of the tiny drops
quench the thirst of our earth.

Can you hear the soft sounds too? What sounds do you hear?
Nitey Nite
love

Hello Tweedles,
I really like all of your soft sounds. Your picture of the twinkling stars is so beautiful that you have inspired me to listen for them the next time I am outside at night. This week it was kinda chilly outside, but I still enjoyed laying the in the sun to soak up the rays and hear all the sounds. I heard the wind as it rustled the leaves. Today I heard the rain drops. Some day soon, I hope to hear your bubbles say "follow me" as they lead me to you!
Love,
Payton

Oh my goodness little Tweeds...I just saw your book....How could I have missed this? It's about time....you should be singing from the rooftops or skipping through the forest...I AM SO PROUD OF YOU and I'm going to order your book so all my kids can read it! xoxoxo

Dad is always asking mom why she doesn't take a radio outside with her when she works in her garden and mom tells him that there is always music in the garden - you just have to listen! We loved your post, Tweedles!

Love ya lots

This morning I heard the sleeping sounds of the dogs around me, and through the open window I heard the owl...When I got up and looked at the moon, I thought of you Tweedles and your Mom's...I think we hear a lot of the same sounds of nature welcoming the day and saying good-bye to the night...

Oww I really love the soft sounds. I like the photos of you with the bubbles (I love bubbles too and I follow them until they pop on my nose!) and the the photos of the moon and stars make me feel relaxed and sleepy, I like to hear the sounds of the crickets they seem to sing me to sleep, its so beautiful!! I love coming to this blog because it makes me feel one with the planet and happy to be a puggy! Love, (P)ugs and high Paws from Frank XXXXXXX

I think you have to be extremely quiet to hear all those sounds - with good ears. A good thing to do every once in awhile to hear nature! sandie

Archie and Melissa said...

hi twee!
oh reading your words brings me right to that quiet place where i can stop and hear all of those sounds too.
sometimes the buzz around us drowns out the quiet place and i forget to stop and listen.
thank you twee, thank you for showing me the way to your beautiful places.
thank you for taking us all with you in your magic bubbles.

I hear the ticking of my cuckoo clock. And the whirl of my dryer. Oh, and some meows.

Mr. Pip said...

I hear all these lovely things too, Tweedles! My favorite are the twinkling stars - sometimes my mom and me sit out on the back porch late at night and listen to them twinkle and shine!

Your pal, Pip

Soggibottom said...

Is that you Tweedles ?
I can hear you right over here :-) x x x

Wilma said...

Well Tweedles. These past few days, I heard the sounds of wishes on stars and the vibration of healing vibes sent from all my friends, and they helped me feel better. I also heard the spuds OG Brigitte and Sluggo right by my side, watching over me to be sure I was resting. I love your moon. That is mupy Mom's favorite kind, just a sliver. Is that a picture of your starry sky? The stars are so bright! Thank you for the beautiful words Tweedles.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Do you hear the soft woos of our gratitude and the beat of our love? Today we heard the sound of the mailman leaving magic messages inside our door. We opened the envelope and heard the sound of hope as we unwrapped blue paper. We heard the soft "oh my" of momma as she held up the note so we could see it was from You. We heard the sound of one perfect tear of joy rolling down momma's cheek as she wordless hugged us. And we heard in her soul the conviction that united quiet warriors with big pure hearts WILL win the battle against cancer. Did you hear the sound of our thanks, special friend?

Tiffy said...

What a wonderful story, Tweedles! I hear the soft sounds all the time. I heard them at the park today as I walked softly on the trail. I never knew dragonflies made a soft sound until today when I was surrounded by them. Their lovely sound made me realize they speak softly so they can hear each other. What a wonderful lesson to learn.

KB said...

I love the quiet of nature. But then, when I adjust to it, I notice that the forest has all of its own sounds, just like you wrote about. I love those same sounds... and the soft whooshing of wind through the quaking aspens.

Thank you, Tweedles. Now I can go to sleep.

I love your stories Tweedles, we love to listen to things in the garden, we have lots of birds and this year we have magpies, they have never been in this area for about 30 years.

Hank said...

Hi, Tweeds! I love this post; it's like a meditation.

Some days - when I can get myself up early before the traffic starts in - I like to listen to the soft sounds of the morning.

At night, I pretty much just hear Hank letting stinkers.

Hi Tweedles,

There are so many sounds that one can hear if we all just stop and take time to listen. You always stop and listen and look and observe everything around you. You always take in what Mother Nature offers. Just the other days I went to a fish hatchery with Mum. I felt like you as I wondered through the rainforest and observed my surroundings. I am hoping to do a post abouts it soon once Mum gets her class assignment finished.

Hi Tweedles! My first family dog was a pug - his name was Butch. He was my best friend growing up.

Nice to meet you, you have beautiful thoughts :-)

I just spent a few days on P.E.I. which is like another country. The fields of corn, potatoes, greens were blowing all the time. The ocean surrounds this land, aah an island of course, so we heard the waves and winds of Hurricane Maria(far away she was..phew). I met my cousin a border collie Shelby, a speed demon. Taking time to explore red beaches and country roads was the best part of my trip.I could hear peacefulness every morning as I opened the door to greet Shelby and play. I hope you and your bubbles find such peace and love to Tweedles!

sashacleo said...

My favorite is the soft sound of contented pug breathing... always soothes my heart. Love the name Tweedles (we call our littlest, deedles!). Thanks for the well wishes, Tweedles is quite the cutie!

Meredith LeBlanc said...

We like to listen to the sounds of our breath as we are surrounded by your soft sounds. Thank you for sharing them with us.

We love you Tweedles!

Thanks Tweedles for stopping by. It is so pretty where you live. Your words are so soothing. Mommy believes in miracles too but she's still scared.

Dear Tweedles... Pay no attention to Gracie. She can think of nothing but her tummy. I think of you Tweedles, when I look at the sky and all is quiet and still and that is when I hear your magic bubbles floating through the air and whispering 'Nitey Nite'

Right now I am hearing the sound of the rain coming down from a warm, Fall sky watering our garden Mums that so brightly greet our visitors to the front porch.

Vito and Gina said...

Oh Tweedles, I have missed you and your wonderful poetry! Mom has been lazy and not letting me get on the laptop. I'll punish her in my own way, don't you worry.

Later!
Vito

PS when I hear soft sounds I just bark my head off. ;)
