The faintest of noise

Yet poise to

Make itself known

Moving close in the air

Until it reaches the destination

Of a permanent home

Left behind each time

To make a point or simple comment

With very little sound

But if you listen closely

It can be found

In and around

A nearby ear

For its main goal here

Is to make aware

What is being said

And meant to stay

Commit to memory

What was heard

From the very words

Observed from lips

Or just idle noise

In the background

That came from afar

Very much on approach

But now it’s near

And just what does one do

After it has arrived

Other than put it away

Inside of their mind

Just moments after it

Was heard and occurred

For there is more to this

Than just a mere whisper
