The Song Without Sound

The Song Without Sound

This is the third response to the film La famille Belier.  Part of the film includes moments where songs are ‘signed’.  This is an impression of that effect.


The Song Without Sound

A third response to the film La famille Belier


Can you hear?

It is the sound

Of a song

Without sound.

The sound

Of a song

Sung with hands,

With eyes,

And with embouchure

Of the mouth

Not for sound,

But for sight.

It is a song sung through




A pulsing hand

On the heart

Of the singer.

Can you hear?

Do you listen

And feel

Its tone?


I am the song of silence,

I sign the words this day,

I visually display sentiments,

And show the tune that way.

When you feel the resonance,

Of the song’s apt tones,

You need not have any volume,

For it vibrates in your bones.

There's a new sun burning, and soft fruits ripening, my precious grizzled tresses tumbling, Dylan's humming 'The times they are a changing', these parting verses are mere shadows merging ...

Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
