Heeding Haiku Noise Prompt 

dogs bark abruptly
trucks backup with high pitched beep
cars rumble past
I stretch lazily in bed
drift back to sleep as noise fades


jingling tunes
of every one’s cell phones
even in church
loud personal conversations
I wish I couldn’t overhear

I chose to write tanka about more manmade noises today but if you like nature here’s a link to haiku posts with natures sounds:  onomatopeia or this one on the wren.
