Go for a walk, listening for sounds in the environment. Think of words which suggest the sounds you hear... the buzzzz of a bicycle speeding down the street, the dro-o-o-one of a motor boat on smooth water, the whisper of leaves in the breeze, the gurgle of the brook over the rocks....

You might want to make a list of "sound" words, or compose a poem using this technique of onomatopoeia where the sound of the word suggests the meaning.
