Bring diverse or disparate entities into unity.
“We are each other’s harvest; we are each other’s business;
we are each other’s magnitude and bond.”
― Gwendolyn Brooks
If a group of ethnically diverse musicians
is not in sync, sounds assault the ears.
If you fill a plate with only sliced
chicken, and mashed potatoes,
there is no diversity of color, dulls
If every wall and accent piece
in a room is beige–a stage
for sleep–what catches the eye?
Without variety in music, food, art,
and people, our knowledge of cultures
would shrink. We would be poorer for it.
