In the quiet of Sunday
It isn't an uncomfortable silence.
Someone has just finished speaking.
Everyone is letting the moment rest.
If someone speaks and someone else interrupts or explains, makes excuses or in anyway detracts from what the speaker just said it sours the moment.
It doesn't matter what just came out of that person's mouth.
There has to be somewhere that people are safe to share.
It's a comfortable silence.
And then someone else opens up.
Their words gush out like water.
Unhindered and free because no one has placed a stone in front of them to disrupt the flow.
And then everyone is still.
As we let it soak.
And we are filled.
And it's quiet.
And it's safe.
