Listen

Listen.

That’s good; now listen some more.

Good. Why is it
that when you focus on listening,
it seems to get quieter?

Maybe it is your self that quiets.

  1. Almost a year of daily meditation has given me a quieter mind where I sometimes find true silence.

    Listening is an art, and when we have others in our lives who are good listeners, we are rich. This is a truly meaningful poem, Jim. There is a lot of wisdom here!
