Being aware of the atmosphere around us,

Whether peaceful, exciting, or foreboding,

Our spirit is tuned to pick up what’s near,

So my question – What are we trained to hear?


It’s a prevailing influence or presence,

Where we are affected by the nudgings,

Do we flee? Do we chill? Hang around?

Our feelings react to our surrounds.


Our spirit tuning seems too restricted,

We are aware of possible trouble,

We remember our feelings from the past,

We’ve learned to respond and move away fast.


But are there times when the good comes knocking?

Do we ignore the encouragement that came?

Could we connect to God’s revelation?

Grasp the ‘Aha’ moment formation?
