Torbay community building... blue sky thinking

Torbay Weekly

Creative community builder Marianne Parker has a poem to offer:

Community Building - Blue Sky Thinking

What if…

What if, we could build our community from our street up,

And sing and dance and laugh and cry and live and die together?

What if…

We could bring together

All ages, colours, shapes and sizes,

Rich and poor,

With or without a front door…

To celebrate ourselves

To be together, always…

What if…

There was always someone there…

Next door, across the road, up the street, on our side,

There for us.

To be strong.

To learn with,

To dream with,

To have fun with,

To be friends with…

There for us…

…And what if we were there for them.

Here on our street,

In our neighbourhood

And across the Bay.

What if... we were there for each other… Together… Always
