A Reason to Listen.


This is it,

The way a lover can 

lose themselves in the eye 

of their love, 

the way time can stop




The way the pinecone falls and

the leaf leaves the tree to lay itself 

down on the ground.

It’s the reason the whale breaches the

oceans surface and the fish jumps out

of the water under nights of soft

moonlight laughing in silence at the absurd

glimpse of a life of air, land and sky.

It’s the reason the bird ever decided to

grow wings and take flight into the

unknowable open heights that sky reveals.

It’s the gift of friendship when no

words need to be spoken and the

same quiet room we enter and sit and seem

to reside for one eternity or another.

The temple bells sound, the conch shells blow. 

Time is taking off her clothes and coming to lay down with you.

You do not need a reason to listen.
