the tale that wagged the blog

The spirit of poetry came to me and said
"You poor thing. You don't know how to listen.
Listen to me.
When I began to listen to poetry is when I began to listen to stones,
and I began to listen to what the clouds had to say,
and I began to listen to others.
And what is most important for all of us, is to learn to listen to the soul,
the soul of yourself,
but which is also the soul of everyone else.
- The Native American poet Joy Harjo on PBS
