Listen With Your Eyes
By Heidi Mordhorst
Inspiration piece

“I can sing the Alphabet Song in silent language.”


Listen with Your Eyes

Secret clutched in a closed fist:
If you wait one pinky moment
Letting sounds slide towards your thumb,
Eventually they perch like birds on a fence,
Nesting two together on a quiet egg
Till the egg cracks and a beak of song breaks through
