Room for Sound (a psalm)

Whistling airstream whirls through a crack;
…..understand the silence of a room not entered.

Mute from birth listening to the maelstrom;
…..words linger without hope in barren vocal cords.

Stillness of meditation creates harmony of thought;
…..sound amplified in an empty house is too loud.

Listening to bad news on the tv is a hard drone;
…..appetite returns when the comedian gets to the guts of it all.

Bathroom acoustics are great for any instrument;
…..audiences prefer the comfort of a larger space.

Wild dolphins connect to the pod with clicks and squeals;
…..captured dolphins stress from sonar in a confined space.

If dolphins could speak with words they would be free;
…..we could not deny them the room for their sound.
