The Big If

Teachers surround us.

If we would stop and listen,

there’s much to be learned.

  1. I love this, Joan. If we would only notice. Your poem reminded me of a poem by Mark Nepo, called “Behind the Thunder”

    I keep looking for one more teacher,
    only to find that fish learn from water
    and birds learn from sky.

    If you want to learn about the sea,
    it helps to be at sea.
    If you want to learn about compassion,
    it helps to be in love.
    If you want to learn about healing,
    it helps to know of suffering.

    The strong live in the storm
    without worshipping the storm.
