  2. mountains when the fog rolls in
  3. sun rise over the ocean
  4. Rainbows
  5. castles in Europe! I always pretend I was the princess in my mind…and wonder what it would have been like

Sounds

  1. my husband playing the piano and singing me love songs…still melts my heart

I too love trains from afar and wind chimes. I hang them outside my windows. 🙂

I love all of these except my hubby never played an instrument or sang love songs to me, but he gave amazing hugs and I loved dancing with him. I’d also add ice tea with lemon and tiramisu for taste. Great list!

I loved reading these.  When I was an arts coordinator in a local hospital  I used to introduce myself as a story listener.  Most people had a story they enjoyed telling me and yet a few didn’t.  I’d ask the later to write/tell me about a beautiful scene that they’d always remembered.  We’d created a poem with sight, sound, taste, tactile info and taste mentioned in the first two lines…and for the third, I’d say to tell me what they felt in that moment they’d experienced.  Really moving sometimes to hear these poems.  I’d type them and give the patient a copy before leaving.  Your list is filled with ideas for a poem … or more.
