    storm clouds overhead
    rain plays leaves like drums, your voice
    silent as the stars

    the moon skips a beat
    your voice calling my name
    from behind the stars

    listening between
    the consonants in your words
    for the sound of love

    your voice black and mild
    a lost dove reaches the sky
    no clouds in her way

    blessings to Black Men
    who can hear the sound of Love
    when the wind's silent

    Focusing the sound
    Forest from trees hard to see
    Still image says soul

    the intimate sounds
    between the forest and trees
    others may not hear
