WriterSpeaksPoetry: yesTOday’s SCHOOL

by WriterSpeaksPoetry

A discovery loomed in the air
The sensitive sense it
The mindful are mindfulL of it
The thoughtful…
The observant look intensely

The lessons of life appear through the actions of passers by
The careless words reveal thoughts
The unspoken is heard
The unseen is perceived

The mindful fill in the gaps
The observant fix the big pix

Suddenly it is clear –
Communication – thoughts, words, looks exchanged
And a message shared
Nothing lost – all understood
The time to act is now – that’s if you learnt yesterday’s lesson
