I’m Listening

Akshay Kapur Avatar

Just sharing a poem that always grounds me and brings me closer to myself.

I’m listening yet I don’t know
If what I hear is silence
Or god

I’m listening but I can’t tell
If I hear the plain of emptiness echoing
Or a keen consciousness that
At the bounds of the universe
Deciphers and watches me

I only know I walk like someone
Beheld beloved and known
And because of this I put into my every movement
Solemnity and risk

I’m Listening by Sophia de mello Breyner
