When You Listen

Posted On August 11, 2020

When you listen
the soft coo
of the mourning dove
reveals the beauty of life

Drops of dew
on blades of grass
sparkle light
into your soul

Water lapping
on the lake
slows your pace
restores your rhythm

When you listen
dawn reveals
the answers
to your problems

The crow’s caw
speaks wisdom
and you know
what you need to do

When you listen
silence becomes your friend
you no longer need
to run from yourself

you understand
life’s wisdom
can only be learned
in the silence

When you listen
the Creator
whispers
you are good

In the silence
your soul is fed
with endless gifts
of love

When you listen
you realize  
something deep
and mysterious

something sacred
is taking place in your life
right here
right now

and the more attentive
you become
the more you
see and understand it

When you listen
your heart
and soul
lead the way

Your feet catch up
to the One Life
you’ve only imagined
could be yours
