Learning Day 2002

   

A child awakes
sense of scent tested
with breakfast
carefully or not prepared

Funny how we
humans
take for granted our memories

Every moment like a child
we grow
like time never old always new

Learning is a process
We acquire…
as order of the universe

so too our senses
of taste
touch , feel
an’ need to know

skills
languages
skills
concepts
values
habits
instruments
in and out of
institutions

hail Birmingham
home of the industrial revolution
from luna society to friends
here science and art engaged genius

here we possess great resources
for centuries to come
we understand our precious resource
is the people
not the buildings…

for this human source
proves more valuable
than megalithic structures
we erect
monuments
we neglect

day of learning
in this human city
living non-smoking breathing
diversity
kalidescope of colours
amazing sounds
tastes
feels and smells

hub of the midlands
where multilinguals proclaim
victory over ignorance
accepting new experiences as a child
never too old or proud to feel smell taste
touch and know
in and out of virtual
in reality
