The Gifts We Bring To Each Other

The Gifts We Bring To Each Other

Kimberly St Clair

The most powerful poetry states startling truths in sparse and sublime ways.  Every once in a while, a poem is the sprinkle of cool water when teachers are in the heat of the day (figuratively and literally). We share the following poem, “Working Together” by David Whyte, as it beautifully captures the gifts we bring to each other as teachers: trusting “those elements we have yet to see or imagine and look for the true shape of our own self.” 

“Working Together”

By David Whyte

We shape our self

to fit this world

and by the world

are shaped again.

The visible

and the invisible

working together

in common cause,

to produce

the miraculous.

I am thinking of the way the

the intangible air

passed at speed

round a shaped wing

easily

holds our weight.

So we may, in this life

trust

to those elements

we have yet to see

or imagine,

and look for the true

shape of our own self,

by forming it well

to the great

intangibles around us.
