A Whisper (villanelle)

I heard a whisper once, you see


it called to me so loud and clear, 


I hope to find it.


 


That bird! In tune it resonates,


can I not tell far from near?


I heard a whisper once, you see.


 


A tale that lies behind those gates,


I reach that which is allowed by fear,


I hope to find it.


 


That splash! Imagination germinates.


Limited I drop one tear.


I heard a whisper once, you see.


 


I'll wait for when the drum elates?


Its hollow, dying, failing here.


I hope to find it.


 


My other sense investigates,


the crime scene found behind each ear.


I heard a whisper once, you see.


I hope to find it.
