Sing Louder!!!

I know, I know, its Barry Manilow, but get over it!!

The Soul Lives Contented

by David Whyte

The soul lives contented

by listening,

if it wants to change

into the beauty of

terrifying shapes,

it tries to speak.

That’s why

you will not sing,

afraid as you are

of who might join with you.

The voice hesitant,

and her hand trembling

in the dark for yours.

She touches your face

and says your name

in the same moment.

The one you refused to say

over and over,

the one you refused to say.

    and they have no headphones or speakers on this computer, but you’re right –  Alma does sound like an angel singing! So does Barry Manilow.

    And I don’t care what their friends say!!!

    Grin!! 😉

    I’ll drop in later to take my lumps!
