Shhh, Listen

            “Be Here Now”
                        –Ram Dass
stop and listen to this instead
we were born to this world
the second and first miracles
to come to an existence and to exist
others follow naturally without end
with such ubiquity we fail to hear
the slow unfolding of the tales
we tell one another each day
through woods alleys suburban nights
the whispered strands of conversation
twine through tunneled darkness
to dance about our troubled lives
and instead of stopping to listen to this
we miss the third miracle cognizance
(December 2012)
