The Whisper In My Mind (Audio)

Poetry By: Scribblings of a middle aged mad man

A misheard whisper.......

Like a spoken secret

her whisper travels my mind

Some words I recognise

but the full stanza is code

Chipped veneer of memory

snags her fleeing tale

I fall on the prey

my claws hungry for wisdom

Alas she has gone

only a damp residue remains

Texture like glue

traps my exploring thumb

Still her whisper

stirs the winds of my mind

A teasing breeze

I long to capture, even nurture

expose and finally understand
