The Whispering of Many – quadrille #24 @dVersePoets

I hear the whispering of many —
as together they scheme against me,
conspiring against my life.

Brought low, my voice becomes incorporeal –
the voice of a ghost;
from the dust my speech shall whisper…
yet still, I hear the many –
whispering from every side.

a quadrille (44 words) written in response to the prompt at dVerse Poets Pub – “whisper” – and drawing loosely on the text of Psalm 31:13 and Isaiah 29:4
