Listen


Listen

know that when you ask
then listen
you will hear
the whispers
the call of the soul
they rise from ones heart
a place with the know
some feel it in their
solar plexus, belly or heart
she can come with the wind
a flower or music of a harp
she speaks ancient truths
still in sync with now
know that when you ask
then listen
you will hear

  4. To know what we ask and then listen....is to learn.

  5. I think we trust those 'calls' from the 'inners' because there seems nothing better to be drawn from our own reasoning.
    Beats flipping a coin. :-)
    ..
    BTW, I've 'heard' them calling from my solar plexus and sometimes even from my belly. Not a good feeling! It is kin to worry?

  12. Hi Everyone,
    Laughing: thank you

    Paschal: I love looking at the flowers as listening, thank you

    Susan: your appreciation touches me

    Sandy: I agree

    Jim: For me there is a presence in the 'inners' that gets my attention. Fun that you mentioned the voice in the solar plexus and belly. I agree, those two are often not comfy, the often point out what we are not honoring. So there is usually resistance to work through.

    Sarah: Fun to see you join macro M.

    Inky: lovely to have you stop by. I enjoy Susan's blog too!

    Rose: ;-}

    Sabrina: Thank you for appreciation!

    Tricia: Thank you for your visits!

    Jasmine: You made me take the photo in again. Thank you.

    4 winds: Thank you!

  23. A lovely verse to accompany spectacular photos! I like that the poem has an interesting visual look. I like how you link the "when you ask/then listen" -- all too often we forget to listen after we ask.

  33. Beautiful words and images Tammie. The first image is particularly evocative - each time I look at it I hear silence punctuated only by raindrops.

  34. This is really beautiful. I love that first pic also. I think when we listen to that inner voice it can be felt by many in the solar plexus, heart. Well done. Have a great day.

    ReplyDelete
  35. How the beauty of your words also take on the beauty of your image. The shape of your poem mimics the bloom on your flowers. How beautifully complete.

    ReplyDelete
  36. This is lovely. I know what the feeling is from the belly or heart.

    ReplyDelete
  37. You always have such different and unique flowers...so pretty

    I only seem to be able to find the same 3 on my hikes and I think they're weeds

    ReplyDelete
  38. Beautiful writing!!! Love the pictures! :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  40. Tammie your writing and sentiments are so very beautiful, a pleasure to read paired with your lovely photos is certainly a treat! We have the flowers in your first photo growing in the garden and they remind me of fairy flowers.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Nice photos and I believe nature such as this does help one listen to what the soul has to say. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  42. To choose to listen, really listen, is to realize much more is going on than you readily assume. To peel away the layers of noise distractions brings you face-to- face with all you ever wish for. The blue poppy on the cover of my Self-Disclosure: Changes from Within book reminds me of the depth of the blue flowers here. They speak to us in a language we already know and understand.

  43. Drops of dew on a bed of blue starting a new day. Your photo’s and poetry are, simply put, Beautiful. You capture the essence of life in your photo’s and you speak of Truth of Life in your words. Listen..
    “she can come with the wind
    a flower or music of a harp
    she speaks ancient truths
    still in sync with now”
    Listen, listen, listen…. You say it so well… Thank you for sharing your beauty and wisdom. Love and Light, Nina P.

  44. Love seeing the water dripping from the blue (like it is losing it's color). Your poem makes me think of yoga and meditation. I feel that sometimes.

    Hugs and blessings,

  49. Isn't "solar plexus" wonderful term?! It brings a burst of light into the middle of the poem despite just being an anatomical part of the body.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Isn't that just the way it is!
    Great explanation.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Your lovely work always wants multiple readings and the accompanying photos remain in sight. Thanks, as always, for a wonderful visit...

  52. Spiritual and inspiring take on inner voice. I guess that's where gut feel comes from.
