Listen

Working with a group of folks under the name of “Artist Share” we did a little assignment yesterday.  The challenge was:

“If you knew that world was listening what question or statement would you put to the world?”

This is what I wrote:

Listen.

Do not simply hear

But listen.

Stop the talking,

Stop the shouting,

Stop the whispering,

Listen.

Stop the music,

Stop the praying,

Stop the praising,

Listen.

Stop the movment,

Stop the action,

Stop the dancing,

Listen.

Listen for crying,

Listen for laughter,

Listen for questions

Listen.

Listen for anguish,

Listen for anger,

Listen for pain,

Listen.

Listen for joy,

Listen for beauty,

listen for peace,

Listen.
