Harmonious Cohabitation

Harmonious Cohabitation


In search of hope, I travelled

over land and over sea – mountains

high, valleys deep, further than

the eye could see.  I met so many

people; we talked and talked

and talked.  We shared food, we

shared our hearts – we sat;

often, we walked.  We listened

with loving kindness to each other’s

fears, concerns. We listened to

each other’s experiences and stories,

aware we all needed to learn –

How to mindfully ask our questions,

speak truth to power with one voice.

How to express clearly the rudimentals,

people face who have not choice.

We reimagined life and living –

Dreamt of a more equal and

inclusive society.  We put forth

our proposals – regarding collaborative

community. Education shared all of

its concerns; re-education stated its case.

So too did sustainable development.

Micro finance spoke with wisdom, grace.

The arts welcomed our endeavours,


where in this new world they would fit,

their concern being the lack of man’s

aspirations and not letting apathy

renew its grip.  It was then

that innovation revealed its

hand. Motivation was given the floor.

Inspiration gave a holistic view. Efficiency

vowed that it would do more –

Discord promised to back off; fear

agreed to bow out.  Anger said

it would hang up its gloves –

Disease packed its case and

checked out.


And life, it gave the biggest cheer

as hope came into view.  Harmonious

cohabitation, now more than a dream:

it is the means, and the end too.
