Listening

October 06, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

The more I use all of my senses, the better I feel about the captures I make. Listening is one of those senses that bring an additional perspective and way of seeing. It can lead to positive change within one's personhood as well.

LISTENING

Listen, listen closely.

Only the silence will bring forth

                ribbons of aliveness the past affirms.

Our ears still hear the faintest

                of cries for help.

Works of love and empathy

                Survive yet another moment.

Look quickly now,

                to the conforming shapes and lines

                that blur in the now

                of shadow and light.

Touch the harsh texture of

                risk and feel the sinking flow

                of anxiety that greets perseverance.

These are the hallways of transition

                and the doorways to transformation.

Sense the rhythms of

                community flowing through

over and around that which blocks

Let the music of civil living

                guide the way.

Listen yet again, be very still and

                hear the gentle and persistent hum

                of energy not yet lost.

Experience the diversity of a people

                and experience the common likeness!

It is the symphony of possibility,

                an instrument of peace and hope.

Out of the test come

                the authentic call, touching the world.

From the moments of loving empathy

                come openness and acceptance, touching the heart.
