Did It Speak?

Not in words
Nor in a human voice
There was no tone, no resonance
No vibration on the inner ear
There was no thrumming
Of vocal chords
No whispering
Not even a breath
Of conversation
was heard

But there in the eyes
In the tilt of the neck
In a smile, a frequency received
A vibration of inner knowing
A deeper thrumming
Of heart chords
with every breath
Love spoke
Louder than words
