A COLLECTIVE POEM BY THE CHOIR
When I sing in our choir...
I feel a level of connection and spirituality that I don't feel anywhere else.
I feel centered, internal, complete and ageless.
When I sing in our choir I feel all things are possible.
Surprised that I am singing, I feel confident and held up.
I feel close to the baby that I am growing.
I feel nostalgic for the times when we sang as a family.
I feel community in harmony.
I feel happy, reverence, relief, warmth, inspired, energized and joyous.
I feel I can do what I have always wanted to do.
No matter how I feel walking into choir,
I always walk out feeling joyful and grounded.
Many thanks to Anne Wein for inviting us to participate in the lovely exercise that yielded this beautiful poem.
