A tribute poem for the Harlem Renaissance West Artists’ Exhibition, 2015

Reverb
Revive
Resurge
Right here, in front of us
Life has taken on a new plus
Right here, amongst us, a mosaic of earthly treasures surrounds us

Reverberating through the souls of our ancestors
Is a chord …a note…a prism of possibilities
Harlem Renaissance West Artists revive our culture through their abilities
Their images reveal our heritage like golden threads in a tapestry

Harmonious energy resurges through jazz vibes and tones
It electrifies and socializes eons beyond text on phones
We are elevated to a new walk on life’s balance beam
Assuredly, child to elder can achieve Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream

Reverb
Revive
Resurge
The time is upon us to re-pattern our walk
Spend time daily in positive thoughts and talk
Life is our canvas, saying “Yes” to Majesty’s vision is our tool
Through creativity, all can emerge as a priceless jewel

Now, more than ever, we are assigned to make every life count
We can shift the tide away from clouds of doubt
Through art, movement, music and voices
New intentions can resurge with a bounty of choices

You are the one, we are the ones to:…
Reverb
Revive, and
Resurge
