A Listening Ear


A listening ear is a great treasure,
You know so much by just listening,
Know when to talk,
Know when to listen,
Just listen now,
You are smarter already.

    The wisdom in silence. Nice one brother.

  2. … and the concise nature of this poem is a representation of the need to listen more and talk less … great initiative bro!

  3. Haba! @wordsfromuyi and @Josephoguche, are you people doing pursue-pursue on only poetry posts? Lol.

    If we listen, there’s a lot to glean.

    Listening, in my opinion, is one which most people least practice. Thank you @damilareoso for reminding us to listen.

  6. Okay, I am listening…

    Ehn, you didn’t give us the gist na. You just assumed we’re smarter already by not talking…

    There’s the saying, ‘if a fool holds his peace (keeps quiet and listens) he’ll be considered wise…

    Kudos. Flash poetry abi?
