be quiet, be still... just listen

Be quiet, be still… Just listen…

the world is trying to speak, can’t you feel it?

In every whisper from the wind,

or the sound of the falling night…

each star has a story to tell

and if you wish it, you can even hear them sing…

In every crash of a wave,

a new beginning is coming true

and even if no one is listening

the story takes place with each new moon…

...Once upon a time...

so hush… just for now

and let the world enlighten you with its beauty…

be quiet, be still… just listen

      Yes, we should listen more. I'm one who enjoys soaking up the atmosphere, looking around me and listening to the world talk. This is a beautiful poem and I like the way it comes around to the beginning, just as each day does.

      Yes, I love to just be quiet and listen. You captured the feel of that perfectly. There is a story to tell if you just stop, look, and listen to the earth. Very Pretty! :)
