The Sound of Nature

What would life be like without music in Nature?

Without the pitter patter of the rainfall on the roof,

Without the sound of the wind howling and the waves breaking on the sandy shore,

Without the sound of the bamboos creaking as they rub against each other in the wind,


Without the sound of the elephants trumpeting as they revel in the mud, taking their ritual mud bath,

Without the spine-chilling sound of the prides of lions roaring in the night, and the very same lions meowing gently as they fondle their cubs in the morning,

Without the sound of the birds singing their various songs in praise of Mother Nature,

Without the roar of the waterfall as it tumbles down the cliff onto the rocks below, leaving them polished stones…

Oh,  it would be like spring without the blooming flowers, and autumn without the myriad of colours…

“Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life”- Berthold Auerbach

  1. Delicious, Sumithra. It reminds me of an article I read about an Aussie guy who sailed the oceans in 2013, and found them to be deathly quiet. Dead fish in a Dead Sea and no bird life in sight. What a woeful sound…

  2. Mother and Father Nature can sing some beautiful tunes, but when they are having a disagreement, you don’t want to be anywhere near the sounds of those hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, fires, blizzards……………

  3. Nature is so soothing if we just take time to connect.
    Thanks for the follow. Animals must also be important to you 😀
