National Poetry at Work Day
14th January 2014
A short poem written by one of our inspired members of staff. We think it speaks about what we do at Pan and more importantly, about what we hope to achieve...
Daydreaming of spaces where we wakeup again...
The parts of ourselves
That were discarded to survive a disapproving world
Here, in a pocket of permission, friendship, welcome, acceptance and creativity
We are reacquainted with the lost-bits,
It doesn't happen overnight
Once bitten, many times shy
It's a process.
Rediscovery is one thing,
re-familiarising ourselves is another.
Strange at first,
comfortable over time
and finally fond to the extent,
taking the lost-bit back
to transform the diaspproving world
desperately in need of the very part of ourselves we really nearly almost forgot.
