The Breeze to Ken Block Drifts London
A gentle breeze carries a not so gentle reminder of times
A not so gentle breeze carries a gentle reminder it's only Ken Block
The Breeze (round)
Drifts mildly by I wasn’t there
And even worse I didn’t care
Those wasted breaths of memories
Of times I could have done much more
A fancy whim or smile to please
Another human soul to ease
And one more heartbeat to explore
So funny how a puff of air
Now whispers dreams I can’t ignore
Of lives I could have lived before
Forever frozen in despair
Of times I could have set all right
Instead of lilting unaware
Pretend that it all was fair
While blaming everything in sight
So funny how soft final gust
Drifts mildly through things held so tight
That all this pain I feel tonight
A payment of my broken trust
Of times I could have heard the breeze
Which brushed through dawns of far more just
Now waiting there amid the dust
To touch much wiser ears than these
A gentle breeze carries an endless message to a broken heat in this round. A round is a poem where each stanza is connected to the next. The last stanza is connected to the first. Thus a round has no beginning or end. This round is more. It can easily be a lyrical poem. It has two types of stanzas. One begins with "So funny", the other "Of times".
Funny that this was a common theme of our friends having relationship problems. Some were temporary. Some resulted in breakups. Some were endlessly etches in people's personalities. Arlene and I didn't give any advise. We just listened. I guess people came to us because we were "lovers". We didn't appear to have their problems. As one may imagine it was mainly guys, who wanted to talk (with this problem). Funny how Arlene and I didn't have their problems. By listening to our friend's problems we were able to check ourselves. Funny that life sometimes just works.
Listening, from my standpoint, is such a valuable skill. So many people want talk, but few people want to listen. Many are just waiting their turn to talk. But listening. Really listening. Listening to what another person is saying, to what is being said, is an art. An art that has to be practice, refined. Sometimes a person is saying one thing and expressing another. Sometimes a person is expressing (or trying to express) something deeply meaningful, that demands full attention. Sometimes a speaker's word contain an answer only a listener can hear. Sometimes the words of a speaker are a song that only a good listener can take in. A good listener is a good learner, The gift to a good listener. Listening is not limited to one person listening to another. We can, should listen to ourselves. Then there's body language... Welcome to the world of listening. There is so much to learn. There is so much waiting for us. And while we listen, Enjoy.
