1. Finding What You Didn’t Lose
    by John Fox


    When someone deeply listens to you
    it is like holding out a dented cup
    you’ve had since childhood
    and watching it fill up with
    cold, fresh water.
    When it balances on top of the brim,
    you are understood.
    When it overflows and touches your skin,
    you are loved.
    When someone deeply listens to you,
    the room where you stay
    starts a new life
    and the place where you wrote
    your first poem
    begins to glow in your mind’s eye.
    It is as if gold has been discovered!
    When someone deeply listens to you,
    your bare feet are on the earth
    and a beloved land that seemed distant
    is now at home within you.
