Footprints in the Windsm # 710

When I was a speaker I was told to
let the important word land
for a beat
before I speak again
and keep my eyes with one person

now hearing is my life
and still the principle is true
let the important word land
in me
for a beat
before I speak
or think
and keep my eyes with one person

perhaps if I will
stop to not think
stop to hear the echoes of the echoes
of the other’s voice
let the other’s tones and rhythms savor me
then the real will be heard
and we will meet

beyond meeting there is no more


Please pass it on.
