Phonons Entombed - Poem by Charles Tiffin Clegg

Phonons Entombed

No echo from the silence
a void beyond explaining
She said nothing, no utterance at all
He shuddered in the very cold
A lover listening to the vacuum
But nothing could be heard

He had spoken in the canyon
that he loved her nature so
There was no echo in the silence
But the canyon had the message
His words were clearly heard
His loving phonons not returned

The mountain and the canyon
in place millions of years
usually reflected back
a sound wave in their ears
Time would pass for eons
That missed sound not exhumed

Condensations and rarefractions
were in the cool night air
The drums absorbing nature
had sent the message centrally
The computer there found meanings scary
Complexities put the sound in the crypt of memories

Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible. ~
