Language of Love
Eyes closed and leaning back
She listened to the sonorous
yet dulcet, tonal
sounds of a voice
Comforting to her ears
In her mind she pictured him
Tall and olive-skinned perhaps
The accent so slight
and hardly noticeable
with an uncommon emphasis
on certain syllables
Making the most basic word
poetic and honeyed
in its delivery
A soothing balm
on a scalded soul

Laura Bloomsbury is hosting Tuesday Poetics at D'Verse Poets.
Today is National Thesaurus Day and she has prompted us with
writing a poem as follows:
1. Write a SOUND POEM which includes AT LEAST ONE from EACH of the FIVE HEARING CATEGORY SELECTIONS below: (reference the hearing words you chose in your post).
bellow; clink; drone; jingle; quiver;
clamour; dissonant; rip-roaring; tempestuous; vociferous;
dulcet: honeyed; poetic; sonorous; tonal;
blabber; cackle; dribble; gurgle; seethe;
beseech; chant; drawl; embellish; intone
Feel free to dip deeper into your chosen words by elaborating further from the Thesaurus with synonyms and antonyms
2. Simply write about the Thesaurus, as the above poets have – what it means to you; describe it, have fun with it. Let the synonyms flow, or antagonise with antonyms.
There are no restrictions on poetry style or meter but those of you who like Acrostics might want to make a nine liner for THESAURUS.
I chose the third set of 'Sounds'
