The Best Poem Of Kimberly Burnham

What If Parkinson's

What if
reading a poem could improve
symptoms in Parkinson's disease
poem stories in action
observed and dreamed of being able

Can you understand
the words of an experience
sensations evoked
feeling movement
actions in each story

Fear rises as dawning
skin prickling
a cold wind blows
words fall

Joy leaps as
salmon ready to birth
a generation

Each story challenges
poetic words
into the page
and soul

Creating crosstalk
between underlying relation
language and action
processing plays with execution
internal dynamics
overlapping pools

Kimberly Burnham Quotes

'Just a few years ago, when I asked a neurologist if the brain and spinal cord could heal and regenerate, he said 'no' and in his world, maybe 20 years ago, that was true. Not particularly useful but in that time and space—true. The cool thing about today is a neurologist reading his or her own medical research literature is compelled to answer 'yes, under certain circumstances.'

It is easier for the brain to reach out for what it wants than to let go of what it doesn't want. Reach for your dreams.

People who feel better make better choices for themselves, their families and communities. Helping people feel better contributes to healing and world peace.
