Listening to Hear

Listening is a working delight:
to hear the birds gamely chattering;
to convey to you songs of joy; to 
learn what makes you whole is
all a form of listening. It is the
secret of friendship fully seasoned
by serving each other and learning the
stops and starts of love. What
beauty is to hear the voices
of earth speaking brightly, the
galaxy in every word. Even when 
darkness falls and the only thing 
left to hear are lies in darkness,
we can pass them by knowing we 
have done right to listen. Learn.
Hear each other with new
awareness that never holds back
to grasp the knowledge of one
another more fully.
