what I think day #22 PAD november chapbook challenge-stand

If I were to tell you my views,
firmly gripped in my hands.
Would you take the time
to listen to my speech —
so carefully rehearsed in front of mirrors.
Or would you close your
mind and refuse to hear.
Should I sit on my hands,
and not do a damn thing.
unsaid — in time all words
fall on empty ground.
With no-one to pick them up
and dust them off.


  1. I agree and have come to believe that spoken, or even written, they can become seeds that bring a bountiful harvest. Really like this one Pamela,


  2. Elizabeth,
    Thanks. Spoken or written they can mean so much and so many things to each of us.

  3. There are some peoople who DO listen to what a person says. Those people are to be treasured. I know you are one of those people who really hears what another says. I do believe we have to keep speaking and speaking, whether people listen or not...but as for taking stands, I'm not up for that too much any more. LOL.

  4. Mary,
    Thanks so much. I do try to do my best and hear what others have to say.

  5. Oh I really like this Pam, it always is a fear that our words fall on the ground unheard...after so much thought and practice....can feel this one for sure....

    Know you are in Mexico....but have a Great Thanksgiving anyway....blessings...bkm

  6. Thanks Barb and that is so true. Speaking sometimes to people I know what I say certainly does fall on deaf ears. Thanks so much for the Thanksgiving greeting. We are making a pot roast with carrots and potatoes, yum! Nothing traditional here. I hope you and yours have wonderful and safe holiday.
