Voice Unplugged

In response to Daily Prompt : Voice

If eyes be the  windows to the soul,  

The voice I say, is to the mind, a scroll

The bubbling fizz of mirth brings forth a smile

The coy and coquettish conjures  “stay awhile”


The hint of a break heralds impending tears 

The subdued one, intones suppressed fears 

The thickening voice of a passionate lover,

The soothing voice of maternal cloud cover.  .


To me, the voice is but an extension of the mind ,

Every voice I meet, an unique facet I always find

From the inflection to the tone,  it “talks” to me 

To me, a scroll of the mind, a voice will always be!

    Lovely … wonderfully worded and rhymed so well. My day is incomplete too if I don’t hear your voice even when miles separate us … so often.

    An interesting metaphor… so much indeed can be”read” from the voice. Love this one…..

    I am at a loss of words! This is so beautifully penned 🙂

    P.S. Have you heard of NaPoWriMo? It begins tomorrow. It’ll be fun if you join along 🙂
