Community is
By Melanie Klug

Community is individuals,
Rising and falling
on the edge of their mats

Community is witness,
each member in this moment
and that moment

Community has hands
to pick you up
and to clap for you

Community has legs
to stand beside

Community has arms to
open the doors for others

Community has lips
that release the truth

Community is heart
beating together
and individually

Community accepts
the old and the new

Community knows
cycles and seasons

Community is extension
beyond its denomination

Community is a destination
not recognized by mapquest

Community is place
Community is love

Community is
The Big Bend Center

Love, Melanie
