I arrive in your room
   high-strung from
   a long, intense visit,
   one of so many high-strung visits.
But you offer a quiet place.
   Your peaceful and silent body says --
   slow down
   take a deep breath
   be quiet
   be present
And your room, full of spirit,
   admits me
   to be an oasis for
   you and your soul.
