It’s quiet in the church library

It’s quiet in the church library
All around the sounds of the people of God
moving
talking
hurrying

But in here, the silence
of a tired mother napping
of a toddler who refused her class
of a father unsure of the next move

The clock’s ticking
breaks the silence
which reforms around us

This was not my plan
But maybe it’s what we needed
To sit in quiet
And hear the silence

together
