I usually love the silence around me. The sounds of silence are my favorites. When your soul is calm and you cut yourself off from the noise around you, then you are able to hear the inner sounds, sounds that float through your memory like a light cotton cloud.
Sounds of years gone by, of shared laughter and joy, of small little things that touched your heart and went back in time like the waves of the ocean. I call them sounds of silence. The sound of the night is the best example I can give for it is my top favorite.
While searching for something to write I stumbled upon this title and smiled silently. Many sounds are my favorites. Some from the bygone years and others part of my daily life.
I remember how a train whistle took me to a magical land and I rushed to the window, my ears glued to the faint sound which slowly increased. The rhythmic sound of the moving train never ceases to trill me. I think there is something haunting about it especially if it is cutting through a misty morning or a foggy night.
Thunder, lightning and rain have always been one of my favorites. The way the drama of sound and light unfolds in the sky and the raindrops fall on different things makes it seem like a great musical. The thunder like applause and the rain drops falling as the beats of various percussion instruments. The sound effect is really is amazing.
I love the sounds of the woods especially in the early morning and late evenings. A walk in the woods may open your senses to sounds you have never heard before. It really is an enchanting experience, the sound of the crickets, of leaves rustling in the wind, the dry pine needles cracking under your feet, the flapping of wings of birds hidden in the thick foliage, sudden footsteps of some animal and many more.
Have you ever heard someone play a flute in the stillness of night? I love that sweet melodious sound that reaches deep inside your soul.
The sound of a mountain river is awe-inspiring and there is always a variation in it depending on from where it is flowing. I love the sound it makes as it gushes through the boulders and ravines.
Some sounds from the everyday world that we live in always thrill me and are my favorites.
Sound of motorbikes zipping past is awesome, especially the sports bikes. I find it very seductive.
Popping corns give out the most delicious sound ever produced. I love the pop sound that they make. There is always a mystery behind them. No one knows when the next one will pop and I love the suspense it creates.
The sound of a sizzler I another of my favorite food sounds. The sizzling sounds it so tempting and inviting.
Another of my favorite sound is the bells of temples and churches. They sound so cheerful and welcoming at times and so soulful and serene at others.
The crackle of wood as it burns in a campfire is such a delight. It always evokes fond memories of happy times spent around a campfire with friends and family.
There are many other sounds, which often bring a smile on my lips like the sound of anklets around the feet of little babies, the gurgling sounds babies make when happy, tearing sound of a paper (I loved to do that as a kid) and the ring of the phone when you are expecting a call from a loved one.
They all hold a special place in my heart and though I hate noise, I prefer the sounds that linger in my memories.
