A poem by Diane Connelly. Thoughtful words for therapists and clients to ponder:
Listening grants speaking
If you give me your listening
I have a place for my speaking,
A partner in bringing forth a world with my words,

You Home me
You, through your listening give me dwelling
You give me residence
You, being, grants me, being
