Shhhhhhh

Whispers cloud the judgment of weakened minds
wreaking havoc with the fragile balance of id and ego
humbling the sprout in its new greenery.
 
The winds are made of whispers, fear is their home
and each human husk shivers at the sound of them.
The unknown comes in the whispers of dawn, 
the burgeoning of night, the bloody bath of birth
and the shriveled skin of the corpses we become.

Whispers cloud the rage of temporal reality
beckoning with their softness, tonguing the ear,
licking the neck too soon stretched on mortalities noose.
  
Reference Carrie Richards – A Dream in the Mist – line 9 whispered steps

    I'm back again, to say once again, my thanks to you, not only for honoring my older poem with this, but for my placement in the poem inspired by Chris A. I have so many poets to inspire me.....you are at the top of my list! :)

    Debbie, inspired by a master and written by one--this is truly a broth of many thoughts and the seed of others.

    I am more than flattered that any poem of mine, would have even one word or line to use as reference...... you are truly one of the gifted poets here...and have inspired me many times over and over to try harder. Thank you always for patience and helping me along the way, Deb. I'm still learning from you.
