The listener and the deaf

playing an instrument, listener
The art of listening

The Listener

There was this famous artist
Playing in a metrostation

Unnoticed

Only children
Recognised the beauty
Of the play…

And stopped
To  listen…

In what a hurry are we
That we become deaf?

 

An open ear 
An open heart 
An open mind

Listening 

to others
the Other

taking time 
to reflect 
on what is heard 

the listener

a silent aknowledgement 
an understanding 
respect 

a silent witness 
an audit 
a presence

Listen 

to the sounds
the rhytm 
the notes 

Music 
carried by the waves
