Listening

14 Jul

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

 

 

 

People need people to validate their dreams.
No one is independent-
We all need someone, it seems.

 

A speaker needs a listener
to the language of his heart.
We all need recognition-
true listening is an art.

 

Do you truly sense the hunger
when a person speaks to you-
Or do you struggle with impatience
to express your point of view?

 

We may not all be Hemingways
or famous for our prose-
But the need for self-expression
is something everyone knows.

(Are you listening?)

    Yes, I am listening and I’m hearing a deeply vital truth. Lovely writing, too.

    Love, DiVoran
