One Word - Listening


image from google dot com


In the silence and in the din
Listen

When the amber of choices caution
And the red stumps an action

Know that voices are ever speaking
Know that guidance is always seeking

Audible
Perceivable

Paint this day in the colour win
Respect a good year; yes, Listen

  3. True that we should listen in both the silence and the din. Sometimes in silence there is more to hear than we know. In the silence perhaps we can find the guidance we are seeking?

  14. I like the imagery that you have painted here. You left it open enough for us readers to interpret whatever we liked. I also enjoy the connection of word choice that you've used that relates to painting (red, amber, din), it helped me picture a bonfire.

  22. Know that voices are ever speaking
    Know that guidance is always seeking

    Many don't listen. That itself can cause tension wrought with impending adverse feelings. Many take the stand to make lots of noise to be heard but not forgetting it creates bad impressions. It will lead to the opposite effect.Great thoughts Gillena!
