Dialogue poems are one way to harvest. There are a growing number of us that are catching the words spoken in circle, and with a bit of jazz-like play with them, turning them into poems written by the group. It is quite a thing for people to hear themselves through captured words and integrated images. This week at Arnprior AoH, Chris Corrigan, Esther van Gennip and I each offered some of this. For Esther, I think they were her first — and it was total standing ovation!
Here is the one that I harvested. It was some sharing from participants after being hosted by Jane Lindsay on the work, developed by the ADIEWA Centre, of finding our deep, grounded, belly voices — resonant voices.
And with thanks to Lorraine for her encouragement to me to further share harvest through audio files.
