And Yet Your Voice

And yet your voice
taps and threads through wires
along midnight lanes
like bells ever rounding
their countless changes.

And yet your voice
whispers on my glass
a soft and southern wind
that envelopes
the whole house
with the sigh of your name,

And yet your voice
as rain that reaches for the ground
Like a maid of age and wanting
a soft engine whispering like night
to light our souls.

And yet your voice
excites my ears,
trembles at my drums.
Fine filaments
dance and weave and thrum.
inveigling my heart

And yet your voice
a song like a dawn of birds
your passion breathes and starts

The whisper when you go
could break a thousand hearts.

And gone now

And yet your voice

Still

  • Aww Anni when you pick a piece from my poetry it almost feels as if it is the core of the whole thing. I don’t ever want to render you wordless. I would be so much poorer if that happened
