Sounds with Meanings

Onomatopoeia /.ɒnə(ʊ)matəˈpiːə/
noun

– the formation of a word from a sound associated with what is named (e.g. cuckoo, sizzle ).
– the use of onomatopoeia for literary effect.

So the prompt today is all about the sound that expresses the meaning of the word. 

 

Ah, ah Choooo!
God bless you!
What if I don’t believe in God?
Ouch! Yikes!
Gibberish, Jibberish, and gobbledygook!

This poem of mine
tic-toc poet took its time
Not chance, did it rhyme.
