Timed Pause

Pause. Mark Twain

The art of pause is very important in my counseling service. Most of the ladies who seek help have complex issues. Sometimes they have a lot to talk about and are happy that someone listens to them. Other times, they couldn’t find words to describe their thoughts and feelings. I am to feel comfortable to pause and allow silence. I find pause and silence is as effective as talking!

Daily Prompt: Pause

Daily Prompt: Fierce

He is knocking, gently, no fierce.

He is waiting for the invitation.

He then comes in and listens,

All of your concerns and reasons.
