BREAKING NEWS – Philadelphia Public Financial Authority Bill Passes 15-1!

A poem by Pamela Haines: 

A meeting

 

Old friends

all their antennae out

weaving together a fabric of agreement.

How much listening can a room hold?

 

In a sea of ambiguity

each one takes a turn

catching a thread of clarity

and offering it to the rest.

 

Caring sensitive fingers

probe the tangle of ideas

sorting the strands

tying loose ends

thoughtfully

holding the pattern-that-might-be

in the mind’s eye.

 

The skills and patience,

intelligence and creativity

of a dozen lovers

thinking together

building with fine familiar tools

in an uncharted land
