Raymond A. Foss Poems

Listening by Raymond A. Foss

So much to learn, like Mary
sitting at the feet of Jesus
listening to the voice of God
in silence, a message to share with us

Like Martha, feeling the pull of the day
the work waiting to be done
Slowing instead, choosing a better part
remembering He is in our presence

He is here now with us, if we call on his name
Sit, for awhile, drink in the master’s words
speaking to us in that stillness
if we but let him in (Martha)

Pray waiting for the words of the spirit
waiting for words of God
to could out of the quiet
to our listening ear, like Mary
