W is for whisper

(1. to speak with soft low sounds using 
the breath, lips etc without vibration of
the vocal cords 2. [of trees, water,
breezes etc] to make a soft rustling


Each crinkly kale leaf
iced. I cut each small
leaf, largely uneaten
and it is brittle. None
of the garden's plants
move. They are frozen
in time, glaciated. Not
one of them whispers
my name. Not one.
I am silent as I cut.

How tasty the soup
this evening!
