wondrous sound

Isn't it so, that speech starts
as a gust of wind inside the lungs,
my heart rushing skywards

in frequent audible pulses
shaping around the tongue ―

a pair of syllables, once mute
rolling off my mouth now

such a wondrous!  sound,
as I pronounce a name out loud. 
Your soft voice answering.
