Poem for Today. Whispers by Adreyo Sen

Pink by Sharon Apted


In the densest of jungles,

the loudest of screams

are not as loud

as the near-silence

of a whisper.


Some whispers

aren’t as frail

as the people

who give rise to them.

Unlike their source,

they do not extinguish

to the soundlessness

of tears.


Whispers so close

to stillness

often knock against the

unfeeling rhythm

of chaotic hearts

and coax them

to a submission

that is absolute.


Enthroned in hearts that do not fear

their absolute, calm


the whispers travel

across jungles and little

moorings of clear water


transforming silently

the humid anger

of the night.
