The listener and the deaf

playing an instrument, listener
The art of listening

The Listener

There was this famous artist
Playing in a metrostation


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


to others
the Other

taking time 
to reflect 
on what is heard 

the listener

a silent aknowledgement 
an understanding 

a silent witness 
an audit 
a presence


to the sounds
the rhytm 
the notes 

carried by the waves
