Resonant Whisper

Resonant Whisper

A never ending journey, to get lost we fret,

Some sounds that we hear, save life from death.

They alter in pitch, they accrue over time,

Their only purpose, to make the journey sublime.

As each one goes through our unconscious mind,

An unknown part of us, they tend to unwind.

A beautiful sound, an archer's touch,

It pierces the heart, but maybe not much.

A fleeting thought, so fast it came,

It tingles your senses, they all feel the same.

You think you have reached the end of the loop,

You start to filter, unknowingly you group.

Out of the blue a whisper passes by,

You tend to ignore it, you seem to know why.

But as time moves on, you hear it again,

You start to enjoy it, you no longer feign.

Sometimes its candid, which pricks like a pin,

It created itself from somewhere deep within.

The silent whisper in a world of the blind,

It starts to resonate, is it your kind.

You hear more such whispers as you go along,

Use your imagination, it adds up to a song.

As the whispers grow slowly, you must let it know,

Of its aesthetic rhythm, a well composed score.

But when distances threaten, will the whispers cope,

No promises to keep, no words, just hope.

Will the whispers start fading, will it whisper no more,

A song for your heart, it resonates for sure.

I guess this poem and the blog below has a solid Link. The whisper here is nothing but the nature which whizzes past us everytime we try to embrace it... nice one dude..

well didn't intend to have any connection with the blog below it. Used sounds as an analogy for ppl. Whispers are one kind from amongst the populace... actually equated whispers to friends..

@ solitary reaper
thanks :-)

@ amrit
but I guess poems like other art do not belong to the creators... they belong to the readers/viewers who infer whatever they want from it... the thoughts that they evoke are yours so I shouldn't be telling you what I mean't when I wrote it as I would just be leading you from your thoughts...
ok enough of all that philosophical stuff :-) I'm gonna kick your ass in office as usual :-)
