Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “animal sounds.” Write about the sounds animals make and how you experience them. Have fun!
‘Animal sounds’ remind me of our grandchildren. Not only our grandchildren but most children love to imitate the ‘bow wow’ of dogs and ‘meow’ of cats as soon as they learn to talk and to imitate. It is interesting and I wonder why they do that.
Of all the animal sounds the one which I don’t like is that of dogs howling. They raise their heads and start howling. I wonder why they do that. There must be a reason. Anyway that sound reminds of those long ago days when I enjoyed reading horror books, about werewolves and about Dracula. I think it was in 1977, I was in high school and I had completed Dracula that evening. It was a full moon night and moon light streamed into the room. I watched them with horror and I was sure that Dracula would come into the room on those rays. I woke up screaming with my mother rushing into the room 😊. So long ago, but I can still picture that scene.
Books are a very important and nice part of my life. But I make it a point not read anything disturbing just before going to bed 😊. Nightmares can spoil the night.
