Eternal Listening

Eternal Listening

I've turned off the news
No more singing the blues,
The sky tells me all that I need?

My day was once filled,
Time-wasters distilled.
And the bank account no longer bleeds.

I speak only truth,
No confessional booth,
To mend my behaviors in haste.

Time, talent and treasure,
I've found giving is pleasure,
My life's void of excess and waste.

Feeling naked, exposed,
Countless pleas I have posed,
Did I speak to you in the wrong voice?

I thank you each night,
Mornings all start off right,
Though troubles still challenge this choice.

With faith of a seed,
Untainted by greed,
Your process devoutly endured.

I accept as your answer,
This vibration called cancer,
A life void of love has been cured.

Deep into their eyes,
I did realize,
My first understanding of Soul.

Smiling in tears,
They relinquished my fears,
It took disease to make me feel whole.

Five simple senses,
Science dropping defenses,
Proving more to be seen, without doubt!

I still needed proof,
Bare feet on my roof,
Arms spread, "Just smite me", my shout.

Words not your way,
Nudges came into play,
Things better than asked, you did bring.

Awake, not alone,
My Life not my own,
I thank you Eternal Listening.

Passionate for nature, life, writing and sharing, this site is mutually dedicated to my three favorite vehicles through life - Photography, Writing and Speaking. As professional photographer I was (and still am) in my favored "Observer" mode. As writer, these observations exposed a deeper understanding into ethics, authenticity and leadership. As speaker, I get to be selfish. In giving we gain - big! By helping you to discover your own authenticity, passion and where you too are a leader, I get a huge pang of fulfillment. Yes, I am a giver - the most selfish sort of person that ever was. (that is, once you realize how great the results of giving truly are)
