Listen (poem)

Updated on April 16, 2014

Listen

-

Every word

Lips conferred

Though mind blurred

Something stirred

Listen

Listen

-

Feelings flow

Letting go

Heart aglow

Trust bestow

Listen

Listen

-

Listen as the waves caress the shore

Whispers’ music flowering the sky

Breaths of summer waiting a reply

Will this ever happen anymore

-

In her eyes

Are the whys

Locked in sighs

Passion’s prize

Listen

Listen

-

Closer still

Hopes fulfill

Sparks a thrill

Wishes fill

Listen

Listen

-

Listen to the winds which flush the vales

Time which sings of moments yet begun

Dreams from which a love like this is spun

All the Joy this paradise entails

-

Listen as the sunset’s glories sore

Melodies of stardust all around

All that matters centers on a sound

Will this ever happen anymore

-

Every word

Heartbeats heard

Soul incurred

Always stirred

Listen

      Lovely poem. There is so much to listen to, even from the sounds of nature. I tend to spend too much time looking and need to spend more tim listening. Thanks for this.

      If we stopped to listen, we'd understand so much more - including each other...
