The Whisper by guest poet Matt Humphries

Matt Humphries

The Whisper

The breath of a faraway sound, whispered from your lover
In the midst of a crowd, a crowd of a concert, a city or dive bar
A whispered caress that envelopes your being, makes you feel warm
In the chill of the winter, in the mind’s eye of a blizzard.

The spring has arrived with the faraway whisper
Sent to you with love and no conditions attached
A beautiful growth of roots in your stomach
The seeds of a life and the strong oak of renewal.

Nature’s great way, a plan for every being and soul
You may be call it destiny but I call it hope
The light of the whisper from a faraway sound
Creates a bright so beacon that the world can see in the distance.

No ocean too far or mountain too high
Even in the desert there’s a multitude of life
This is how love feels, it’s the crux of the matter
The faraway whisper from the heart of your girl.
