As I started to think about the wisdom of the collective
I begun to see how we all can take a seat in a council
With our wisdom, our experience, our interests
Intertwined with self, with identity, with soul
I couldn't help but see how much information
Already exists in places of study
Knowing who I have invited to this performance
(that has turned more into a ritual for learning)
My veins started to bubble with excitement
Imagining what offerings could possibly brought forth
With the collective present.
See where you might sit
With the collection of knowledge
You hold in your temple
FIRST, ANNOUNCING THE ARENAS
By Moi: Pookie, April 2021
NOW: SEE WHERE YOU SIT
Mind you, this distinction is still brewing.
I know I must start to reveal it,
For it to continue to reveal itself.
Maybe there are other arenas to add
Or a different structure forms
There is a great area of grey in where we sit
For they are all weaved together
Regardless, to sit and claim
Where our wisdom comes from
Reveals the opportunities for collaboration
In deepening, expanding or challenging what we know
To become who we desire.
AND TO WIND THIS DOWN TO NOT REVEAL TOO MUCH...
A CALL FOR CONNECTION
IF THIS DISTINCTION HAS YOUR BLOOD BREWING
HEAD SPINNING OR SEEING VISUAL REPRESENTATIONS OF THIS
PLEASE REACH OUT OR COMMENT BELOW.
I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR WHAT YOU THINK
