What do you know of presence?
Can you pull back
From the thoughts that you chase?

What do they say,
Of you as a listener?
Have you awareness,
And a sense their pace?

Bull in a china shop.
Can’t wait to speak?
You seem to always know?

Better than others?
They need to listen?
STOP! Take a breath.
Take it slow.

We’re always a part
Of communication.
One on one’s
And collective.

Try holding your tongue.
Value other’s thoughts.
With yours
Become more selective.

Like less is more;
Quality counts.
Think of a filter.
You’ve got to use it.

Like practice with sport.
There’s no substitute.
If you’re not with it,
You’ll find that you lose it.
