Tootsies and anti tribalism

I want to take the time to share a beautiful poem from an old GDG Friend, Vanessa at Say No To Clowns. This poem hits me in a powerful way, she speaks about the importance of the one tribe that matters, the human tribe. A powerful message for our age and one that gets to the heart of the GDG – community, inclusion, love.

say no to clowns

I’m sorry, I can’t read

your long soliloquy

And I know this wants to rhyme

But it shouldn’t.
Maybe sometimes.

Because now my mind is

How the light moved through your hair and the dust particles danced in the air around you. It was the shade of your eyes. Reminding me why the sky is so beautiful during a clear day. It was the way you saw me. The way you let me see you. It was the way your hands moved, like they were meant to be touched. Where your fingertips ran over my skin, I could feel the electricity. It was your arms. Their strength. The way they could make my world stop spinning. Your heartbeat. The way it could call mine. It was…
