What If Parkinson's Poem by Kimberly Burnham

What If Parkinson's

Rating: 5.0


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
swim

Each story challenges
poetic words
burned
into the page
and soul

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

Even if poetry doesn't always heal, it can at least take one's mind off of their problems for the moment...
