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 box is a hard drone;
…..hunger returns when the funny man speaks.

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

Wild dolphins connect to the pod with clicks and squeals;
…. the captured reel from sonar in a prison pool.

If dolphins could speak their minds they might be free;
…..how can we deny them the room for their sound.
