Ability To Listen - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

As relevant to teaching...
Is one's ability to listen!
With an offering that is welcomed...
And felt with no need to mention.

Expectations to comprehend,
To advice given...
Doesn't always flow as it should,
When discussions are intended.

When an unclosed mouth,
Refuses to shut.
Misunderstandings start to clog...
Like a fog that clouds.
With an abruptness allowed.
As if this protects...
Someone too proud.

No matter who shouts,
To get their point across and out...
Someone has to reconsider,
The importance of communication!
That triggers the lips to lessen the quips.

With a sharing of agreements witnessed,
And done to enhance drifting reputations...
A continuance to exist!
With a respect kept exchanged.
Remaining high on anyone's list!
