Writing workshop September 2022.
A selection of the poems written during the workshop are shown below. Thank you to everyone who has agreed to have their work published here.
Make change happen
Tell the story
Life on the edge anyway.
Climate pushed them over the edge
Noise;pressure; no time to think.
Poor – not many options/flexibility
Inherited experiences not useful any more. Re-education?
Reduced carrying capacity
World needs to tip. Avoid hopelessness
What to do? Too late to stop it happening.
PLAN – Cities?
Agriculture – plant in gabions quick grow/harvest
Survey land ara
UNITY, EXPERTISE, SHARE.
A filthy deluge overwhelming all
Undoing the bricks
Levering up the trees
This arid land is not cleansed
And the struggle is biblical
Yet on they wade through the mud
Praying for a wave of change
