Shade of Silence

Quietude, which some men cannot abide because it reveals their inward poverty, is as a palace of cedar to the wise, for along its hallowed courts the King in his beauty deigns to walk. —Charles Spurgeon

Sometimes I sit in the shade of silence,

a corner or some placed removed

from the common area, a place

with no expectations and where

time is less demanding.  Stilling 

myself into to well-being, forgetting

my to-dos, and hushing my inner

critic,  I seek restoration, refreshing,

relaxation, if only for a few minutes. 

I allow the solace of prayer to settle

over me, I feel the peace of grace,

and that little respite lifts my spirit,

renewing me just enough to attend

the rest of the day.
