Listen

If I talk all the time,
I need not listen to you.

If I think all the time
I need not listen to me.

If I sit so still I can hear the grass grow,
I will learn the secrets of the universe.

Hello Zareba,

Did you know that if you enable spam blocking you will not get this kind of spam.

Thanks, Beard. I did not know but have found the setting and turned it on. I also discovered I can delete these spam comments, which is what I am off to do now.

I sometimes worry that I talk too much and don't really hear others talking. Or if I'm "listening" to someone talk, I worry that I'm not listening enough, or not paying enough attention. This poem reminded me of that.

A busy mind, Stacey! I found the real difficulty was in stilling it so that I could just be!! Thanks for reading and for your comments.
