To much of this life has been lived unconscious
Have I been present to witness it’s fullness?
Constant chatter, distractions galore
Mindless matters, & looking for more
Skipping from one automatic half-hearted action to the next
Missing the timeless exchanges, connections and contexts
Only when Silent does the debris start to clear….
Only when I Listen can the wisdom appear
How much of the worlds problems would be solved
If we suddenly became mute and had to evolve?!?
