For today’s prompt: “…write a poem filled with noise.”
This caused me to puzzle a bit. Is sound noise? Dictionary.com gives as one of many definitions of sound: “a noise”, and for noise, the somewhat circular “a sound of any kind”. I’ve always thought of noise as superfluous sound, but for the purposes of my haiku, I’ve decided to treat them interchangeably.
If a poem falls
On deaf ears, does it then make
Any sound at all?
