Let this Be a Place of Silence

Let this Be a Place of Silence

Barbara Stevens

Let this be a place of warm and gentle silence:
the silence that soothes and comforts the wounded,
the silence that yields insights into heart and soul,
the silence that calms,
the silence that listens,
the silence that speaks,
the silence that renews.
Let this be a place of warm and gentle silence.

A person's hands and lower arms: the hands touch at the fingertips, palms separated, pointed upwards as if in prayer.
