A critical appropriation of the prophetic imagination can orient us to emergent strategies for a more interdependent commons. Given the precarious times of the Anthropocene in which we are living, a contemplative hermeneutic that responds to enduring oppressive relational practices is necessary. This reflective treatise expounds on three archetypes that underpin the exploration of an Afro-Caribbean experience that is also a contemplative practice: the Barril de Bomba, Bomba, and Flamboyán. I argue these archetypes as poetics can orient us to new relational possibilities.
