Learning is Listening

Learning is listening. Listening is wanting. Wanting is longing for capture and holding. Holding can be understanding, if we are prone to loving. Loving is everything! I, I have to start again.

Thank you, Susan. I really appreciate your comments. This is a funny piece. It's about the closest to Hip-Hop i'll ever get. Ha! It's the staccato rhythm, spoken by someone gushing that got me going. Adding a line to each verse was a challenge, and fun.
