Sustainability - A Poem by Michelle Scally Clarke

Let’s open the doors
And walk to the fields
Let’s create soul sustainability, creating movement, energy!
It’s about making, creating what we need
We are all scraping the barrel
Keeping the balance
The financial and environment.
Sustainability leads to creativity
Comes straight from a grass roots philosophy
Salt of the earth communities
Rethinking promoting inclusivity
We are part of an ecology
And everything we do
Has an impact.
Teeny tiny steps make journeys
Let’s learn from each other
And tell our stories
Going outside the norm, the boxes the walls
To create new noises
Open new doors.
Recognising worth - inspiring ideas
About the little ways
Organisation’s can make a change
Let’s be present
We don’t need to debate climate change
For this is our reality - even today.
So let’s begin a new tapestry
A collage, collaboration
Let’s plant the tree
Allowing, love and care and ownership
To become a common luxury
The blossoms, branches
Attached to the root, free to breathe
I dare you to define, the power of art
What is the most useful thing we can do
Let’s be useful
Full of use!
