Orion recently entered a poem in CTK Foundation’s annual Heart and Soul Grant Award because a.) we love poetry, and b.), a jury gives cash to the nonprofit which submitted their favorite entry. We didn’t win, but crafting a short poem that explains why we do what we do was a great exercise. Here it is:
There’s a wisdom in the wild,
and a wind that moans for justice.
Through the keening of the world,
beauty has a voice.
With a handful of earth,
grow words that flower wisdom.
Dare the art of justice–
we’re still singing through the noise.
Beautiful rhythm and elegantly written. The judges must have been asleep.
