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.
