Quiet

I enter the space to pray, to be, to rest
finding all of it filled with a peace
that sings, prays, chants
in my heart all of it gathered
here at the altar laid down
and around unending
ceaseless prayers have been given
absorbed into the walls and crevices
giving voice to all the weary,
all those laden down who seek rest
they unite in the silence,
in the place of sanctuary
finding they are united in voice
in the hush of the quiet
You answer
beloved
