deafening whispers


At first,
the whispers are few
and quiet

little is obscured.
No one is annoyed.

but few become many
and the quiet becomes deafening
without turning up the volume

until no one can see through
the haze of whispers.

Speak loudly,
or don’t speak at all

And watch life come back into view.

The Pic and a Word Challenge is (usually) a weekly creativity prompt offered Mondays.
