Poem: Listening by Larry Christianson


Listening . . .
to wilderness wind
sweeping through forest
and across water,
speaking with wisdom
for all who pause.
In the distracting clamor
of modern life,
and the numbing noise
of busyness.

Listening . . .
to inner voices
struggling to break free
of new anxieties
and old burdens,
whispering spirit language
beyond words.
In the comforting quiet
of peaceful hearts
and calming solitude
of serenity.

– Larry Christianson, July 2011
