Prayer after silence

Though we stand alone as the strings of a lute, 
still we may quiver with the same music; and even as the 
oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow, 
yet they may share a garden; so may we stand tall and 
united as the pillars of the temple, that the winds of the 
heavens may dance among us. 


Inspired by words by Kahlil Gibran
