Listening

from texasbirds.info

If we listen,

very carefully,

we can hear,

the Creator speaking,

a heart beat,

birds chirping,

announcing spring,

in the distance.

We can hear,

the snow falling,

softly,

and the wings,

of a hawk.

But it doesn’t take much effort,

to hear the heartache,

of this world,

the pain.

I don’t have any sermons,

only two ears,

and a heart.

So God, help me to be,

a good listener.
