March 3 Challenge: Communication

on communication

Little Girl
From RealSimple.com
i was sitting
on the front porch swing
wondering to myself
about matters of life
and death
and paying bills
not even noticing
that you were
tip-tip-tapping
on my shoulder.
 
i shooed you away
like a pesky fly
swirling about my head
and shoulders
not even feeling
the sting of pain
that comes when
one heart rejects
another.
 
now i wonder.
what were you trying
to say to me
that day?
 

Written for both the March 3 Challenge and for the Thursday Jingle Poet's Rally.

March 3 Challenge:  Communication.  I wonder what you would have said, that you didn't?  What would you have heard, that you ignored?  Whose voices do you say are "other" and not worthy of hearing?  Whose voices get preferential treatment?
