Like a Whisper (Poem 282)

pressed between 
the pages skid and stutter 
and promise another 
suggestion 

a fountain of late summer 
like a snowstorm on 
the driveway of short heavy 
nights like a whisper 

words wrinkle the crisp 
sheets of dust 
motes in miles of slanting 
clarity pressed petal-like 
between pages the lyrical
a whisper 
just words
