Listen and Silent

"Listen and Silent are spelled with the same letters––coincidence? 
I don't think so. " Alfred Brendel

 by Elece Hollis

Have you ever listened
 to the sound 
of a single candle 
flickering in a dark place? 
 Have you ever listened
to the power
of a whispered prayer 
in the center of a crisis? 

Have you ever listened 
to the thunder 
of one soft kind word
 in the midst 
of an angry crowd?

Have you ever listened
to different?

Have you ever listened?
