Ending

7 Jun

It’s me.
Click.
Silence.
Dial tone.

Walk over, sit down
No, wait.
Pace,
thisĀ out.

Knock
knock, knock.
Who is it?
It’s me.

Lock.

Creak, crash
Boom.
Shudder, lurch.

Collide
into ______.

Sigh, collapse
fall down
come in.

Let’s begin,
again.

Listen

17 Feb

Today I will listen to the birds in the tree. I follow them with my ears, their laughs and their calls. I listen to the wind in the leaves, to the flutter of their falls. I listen and answer nature’s call.


Today I will listen to my friend sitting next to me. I follow her emotions, up and down they fall and climb, as I listen to her troubles and to her joys. I shut out the noise and I listen. I give her my time.


Today I will listen to the heart within my chest. I follow its beat, consistent and strong, listening to its life and to its song. I listen and I learn to be calm.


Heart. Friend. Nature. I listen to. Patience. Calm. Compassion. All of them I learn from you .
