Silent Echoes

I'm just an old fool
who cared enough to listen
to others that don't...

No "old fool"...just someone that's learned listening can bring joy and deeper understanding.We all should listen more :-)

One can't always help how they "feel" - life happens.
I've always had a fondness for both. x

They are quite a delicacy in some eastern climes. Crickets that is, not old fools.
Can I ask why this poem doesn't sport the quotation marks that the rest in your writings list does Chris, out of pure curiousity?

Excellent Senryu, Chris,
I thank you most gratefully for sharing the enjoyment of your unique mind-works.
I think is is to your benefit that you would care enough to listen to others that don't/can't/are too locked in their own heads to, etc; because, it reflects a man fortunate enough to be able to perceive and learn … otherwise, such amazingly original poetry could not grace your page.

May we have more ole fools like you.
I'm privileged and proud to read you! ⁓ Richard : )

We could all stand to be more like the “old fool; who cared enough to listen.” More listening, more compassion, more hope for each others… even, and maybe especially those with whom we disagree.
