Words for Wednesday — Jan 16

This month, I am hosting Words for Wednesday. Words for Wednesday is started by Delores and now is hosted by various bloggers. The aim is to encourage you to write - a poem, a story, a song or whatever comes to you - using some or all of the prompts.

This week's prompts are:

This sound — listen to it and see what words or thoughts will come up. Please note, this video is 10 hours long so remember to pause it after a listen or if you like, you can just continue to listen to it while you write. (In case you don't want to listen, the sound is 'rain and thunderstorms.'

1. it's going to rain today
2. chasing storms
3. umbrellas
4. charmed
5. a long journey
6. trains

You may write your piece in the comments or post it on your blog. If posting on your blog, please leave a direct link to the post so we can all visit you.

    1. I thought sounds can bring out something in us. sadly, I had to remove the other sound since the video is removed.

      thanks for dropping by, have a lovely day.

  2. my words for wed contribution is here

    have a lovely day.

  3. That gentle drumming is the sound of renewal. Of growth. Of hope.
    Hot and parched, the ground groans in sympathy with the rumbles of thunder, relaxes, and opens up to the life-giving benison of water.
    Umbrella be damned. I am going to join the garden, the insects and the birds and dance in that rain.

    1. Nice wishing-dream-story. And a new word: benison ;) I'll try to send you some of my abundant rain, I did not need to listen to Lissa's sound, Nature could provide here.
      And next installment of Magical Me in the rain.

    2. And Lissa, thanks for the darkening of your letters. Reading here is easier on my eyes now. Thanks!

    3. Beautiful! Yes, sometimes dancing in the rain is the right thing to do.

    4. 'umbrella be damned' - love that.

      thank you for joining in & have a lovely day.

    5. Benison, Oh that word is divine :)
