This poem is beautiful, even without an explanation of the process which lead to it, but we think an understanding of that process adds some depth of meaning. The workshop participants were asked to choose three colours to represent the home country they had left behind. Over a couple of weeks, we shared the stories behind those choices: stories full of joy and warm nostalgia; stories filled with sadness, pain and fear; stories of hope and home. From those stories, images were gleaned and refined and shared. And that, became this.
