Unravelling and weaving, sometimes simultaneously

Color and Sound

How do you paint a sound?
What color is the cadence
of a voice
the susurration of a whisper
the modulation
of a laugh?

I can easily sketch your face
it is imprinted
behind my eyelids
a permanent tattoo
of light and shadow
down to the slope
of your eyelid
over the shining iris

I cannot quantify
the shade of your sigh
the tint of your murmur
the tone of a deep grunt
the hue of completion

There is nothing
on the palette for that
is there?
