Invisibility is not a disadvantage

the 12 given words:
voice sing joyful dumb words without
noise means 
primal (of first importance)
plaintive (expressing sorrow)
trills (to sing in a succession of rapidly alternating sounds)
banal (lacking force or originality)

It is connecting in whatever circumstances
The beauty of a God-given gift
bestowed to the select few
The King, Old Blue Eyes
Michael's moon-walk
Satchmo's resounding wind-pipes
and many more
Invisibility is not a disadvantage
With the voice they sing and
are not even physically seen
Perhaps primal of awareness,
joyful or plaintive, trills or otherwise all precede their reputations
nowhere banal without doubt
a blessing to mankind

The deprived can be dumb but words
are necessarily noises in regulated forms
articulated as a means or as a medium
of intrusion into the sane minds
Throw in poetry and story-writing
to complete the loop
How most fortunate the creative juices
are flowing freely, rightly so!

  1. rightly so!
    Some mighty imaginative phrases in here--
    I like " noises in regulated forms."

  2. I love the middle stanza starting with The King and ending with Satchmo. Itvis required to italicize the required words? It seems to read better without the words being in italics.

  3. i see the creative arts being revealed through the invisible...bkm

  4. a great way at looking at invisibility...

  5. Not everyone can be so talented, but we can enjoy the gifts bestowed upon others if they share them... :)

    1. "The beauty of a God-given gift
      bestowed to the select few"... inspiring the many - lovely Hank

  6. Each sure have a way of expressing what they want, just have to look.

  7. It reminds as I write this that the cardinal is chirping outside.

  8. Let the words flow and overflow ~

  9. I think the invisible will win.. don't mind its plumage, the nightingale still sings.

  10. Love this. Sometimes invisibility is good.
    Kind regards

  11. This was a joy to read Hank, late reading it but nevertheless wonderful.
