The Whisperers

Nothing frightens

a man firmly ensconced

in false power

more than a whisper.

Volume, shouting,

roaring,

these reside within his comfort zone

of conflict,

but a marvelous whisper,

connected to the unseen river of sound

where many whisperers are called to share

and collaborate,

these are the currents

through which the universe

oh so quietly

swallows the small world

of false power

which goes under

kicking and screaming.
