A Shout of Joy

David Whyte is one of my favorite poets. He is so honest that you cannot help but open your heart and look closely at who you are. The House of Belonging is a collection of poems published in 1997, but I've just recently discovered it!  There are so many poems I want to share, but I'll start with just a part of "The Winter of Listening."

Inside everyone
is a great shout of joy 
waiting to be born.

All those years
how easily
you can belong
to everything
simply by listening.

So let this winter
of listening
be enough
for the new life
I must call my own.

~David Whyte~
