Poem No. 2

Poem No. 2 (I am for making this easy to track and will also confirm when I run out of creative juices)

I went to a Parkinson’s seminar not too terribly long ago.

Almost didn’t stay til I realized, these are people I need to know.

Other attendees’ conditions were more advanced than mine, it seemed to me.

Thus my first thought was “Oh, How depressing this meeting is going to be.”

But I was surrounded by people who had no doubt struggled just to attend,

Who showed strength and bravery far beyond my ability to fully comprehend.

As time passed, I no longer noticed the shakiness and the labored movement

Only the incredible attention given each expert who was there to present.

After the event, I thought- there are so many victims of this debilitating disease,

If I can lift the spirits of just one of them -that is an opportunity I will seize.

If my poems bring a smile to your face, I therefore, in the here and now,

Commit to composing as long as words flow, that is my solemn vow.

  • Brings a smile to my face. :)

  • When I have no creative juice

    and yet I'm feeling frisky,

    I get creative with a drink

    of wine or beer or whiskey.

    (Actually not, just had to say it,

    and respond in rhyme to your

    poem, as my tradition demands.)
