Expressive Arts


Yesterday we worked through some poetry writing and movement to support the processing and letting go of difficult images. Here's my poem and my declaration.

the line/the slash/the great divide

Falling into the vastness
of the great divide,


I fear there is no choice
but to become a rock,
a boulder holding a soul,
a hermit hiding within.


I'm falling...




falling...




falling.




Crack.



After dancing with the question this poem provoked in me, I came up with this declaration:


Every time you open your heart,
it's an act of bravery.

Every time you share yourself.
it is an act of Peace.


Be brave today. Make peace.
