A Cacophany poem

Cacophany to Symphony

by Sharon Meda

Cacophony Poem Contest Winner 
I leave the cacophony of the angry city
Where the blasting of car horns
And the screeching of tires
Are drowned out by a siren scream
Truck engines rumbling through noisy streets
Topped by jets roaring overhead

Happily replaced by a waterfall splashing
Birds chirping and a chipmunk's chattering scold
The rustle of leaves in the sighing wind
Is accompanied by the eerie call of a loon
Overhead a flock of honking geese join in
A symphony of nature's orchestrated peace

Writing Prompt
Write a Cacophony poem of between four and 12 lines. This type of poetry uses harsh, discordant, and jarring words, to make the reader imagine noise. Any subject, but keep it clean.
