Whisper: The Origins

[ Edited ]

A shadow tracing on a wall.

Rippled face upon a pond.

Spattered countenance in a puddle,

Disturbed and twisted.


Reflection, a face, a hand

Reaching out, but never touching.

A figment of imagination,

Frightened and lost.


Wraith of misty wintertide.

A phantom of starlight tears,

No heart, no hope

Crying out alone.


Origins of mystery,

The words the whisper bears.

Stemming from a source,

Beyond the mortal keen.


Dark reflection in a mirror,

A beginning to be found,

This is the whisper,

A voice, a very real sound.


'Of wings and words and dancing milkweed seeds...'
