Stop Look Listen: Today is World Listening Day


In honour of World Listening Day today, which has the theme of listening to water, I am adding this poem of mine originally posted on poloroidblipfoto on 1 June 2015.

Stop Look Listen

Stop, for a moment
Look how the rain sweeps across our view
Listen to the wind crashing against our window

Listen to the swoosh of tyres on the road below
Look at lucky us, warm and cosy with our mugs of tea
Stop for a moment, listen, look
