The casual passerby
may only see
a group of women having their hair done.
Workers and clients
exchange pleasantries to pass the time.
But those on the inside
see a Sanctuary
where silence is as welcome as conversation;
where tears flow as freely as smiles;
where tragedies and triumphs bind new friendships.
Sure, some have left
as quickly as they came,
stopping only long enough to prepare
for a certain party or event.
Or to take a break from a long and hectic day.
But those that took the
time to linger
found a special place where they could
be – quite simply– themselves.
A place where people heal hands – and Hearts.
