commune with the universe

Today’s offerings are two poems in the Clarity Pyramid form.  The first is pretty clear, it is about a sense of belonging at my job, which is in a human service field.  The job is challenging, demanding, and would be impossible to do without the support of my co-workers!

 

WORK

human

comradeship

got each other’s backs

case consult cube talking

after work laughter and toasts

”helping place, feel wanted, needed”

This one is about one of the community-based programs some of my clients participate in, which involves juveniles in the court system being paired with animal shelter dogs, where professional dog trainers teach kids how to socialize the dogs, which makes the dogs imminently more adoptable when people go to the shelter and meet them.  In the process, the kids learn how to set rules, give and receive affection, and build social skills.  The adults who bring them to the program — myself included — enjoy comradery as we watch the magic happen.

 

TRAIN

Canines

Juveniles

Therapeutic work

Love: they train each other

Adults watch and talk softly

“learning rules, safe environment”
