please listen…

please listen to my words…

when i use them…

carefully and thoughtfully…

as they roll off of my tongue…

notice how i’ve used them…

the tone, in which they were spoken…

seek the double meanings…

read between each line…

challenge my attention to detail…

if you feel that it pertains to you…

indeed, it absolutely could…

knowing me very well…

you know that when i stop speaking…

that i’ve got even more to say…

so, instead of clearly speaking…

i’m content to wander the shores…

walking, seeking, gathering…

i’ve woven bits and pieces…

of shiny agates and iridescent shells…

into my favorite beach quilt.. 

they remind me of the past and future…

all of my chosen family…

everyone who ever cared to listen…

and there, you’ll be able to find me…

waiting, with outstretched hand…

much more quiet than before…

present, grateful, grounded…

thank you for listening…
