Let's Be Still And Listen

Today I heard some purpley coulds singing.
 They wooooed and blewwwww across the skys.

Then I heard some trees groaning in the forest.
The trees were stretching their roots and wiggling  their toes,
and I heard them sway too.

Then I heard some crows cawwwwing
they said
'its a fine winter day
lets fly'!
And then I heard
their wings flapping!


I sat very still and listened
to see if anything else
was talking to me.
And suddenly I heard the stream
trickeling and spashing
on the rocks!

Do you sometimes be still
and listen?
What do you hear in your world?
Can you tell me?
Let's share our worlds!
nitey nite
love
tweedles
ps
and now i hear words from my friends that they
are helping me with an auction!
thank you so much!

We love to listen to our stream. Sometimes when I'm having acupunctures, I think of my stream, and I go into deep meditations!

You heard some great things!

We have been hearing lots and lots of winds here lately. All that cold air blowing its way across.

We haven't seen many birds with all this cold, we wonder where they all go and hope they are surviving OK.

We love you Tweedles. I love all that you heard in the forest. I love the deep quiet after a big snowstorm - that's my favorite winter sound. Oh, except for when the Robins sing in the middle of winter!

Payton's mom said...

It sounds like you had such a special day. It makes my heart smile to see you so well. I think about you everyday.
Love,
Christy

Beyond the Dog Dish said...

I sometimes think I "hear" more with my camera than my ears. This week though we have had very cold weather making Ice Quakes and let me tell you THAT you HEAR! Stop by and see the Kodee and Becky at Beyond the Dog Dish - I still right about them there - there are not gone!

Wyatt said...

It's fun to listen to the trees and the critters that live out there. We have Owls in the night. Our favorite is the frogs, but they don't start making noise until March.
Happy Listening,
Wyatt and Stanzie

Val said...

We love hearing the roar of the ocean. We also like to sit and be still with our mom, especially when she has treats in her pocket. We can be very quiet then!!

Max Mom said...

It has been said that...
"If you want to hear the voice of God,you need to turn down the volume of the world!"
Thank you for encouraging me to do this, little Tweedles.
I 'hear' the love of bloggers, like you, in the silence.

thanks for reminding me to take a moment, tweedles.... and your muzzle looks so soft I could just land a kiss on it :)

NanaNor's said...

Hi Tweedles, I love your poetry! I went snowshoeing on Tuesday and was very still. We humans have such a hard time being still; we could learn much from you.
Have a pawsome day!

Thank you for sharing the sounds you hear, Tweedles. I'm impressed by your ability to sit so still.

When I sit still, I can hear the sound of the radiators whistling and clinking quietly. I also can hear people's footsteps as they crunch through the snow in front of our apartment building. But then I hear the garbage truck pull up the alley and then I stop being still and start BARKING! :)

-Love,
Sid.

We will be still to listen with you.

Thank you Tweedles! Reading this reminds me of the importance of just chilling out, and relaxing. Living in a fast pace city sometimes I forget. <3
