Energy

Energy

from the Women Living with Parkinson’s Support Group, Kirkland, WA

based on a painting by Painters with Parkinson’s of Canberra, Australia

 

 

I see people, and a great big hat

 

I see three birds on a black branch

They’re nestled up together

 

A turtle’s down

At the bottom

 

He’s got his head out just a bit

In darker water

 

I see sea life and fins

 

A coral reef

I see energy

 

On, off—on, off

Children’s energy

 

I see a couple of whales

Yellow, orange

 

Tulips, like a headscarf

 

I finally see something—

 

There’s a mother

Holding her daughter on her

Shoulder

 

A sleeping child

 

I see a little boy

With a balloon head

 

And he’s waving goodbye

To someone

 

Someone’s in the bed

 

Who is sleeping in the bed?

 

Why is the boy waving goodbye?

 

All I can see

Are three birds

 

I see a yellow and green sea serpent

Floating

 

On the coral reef, pink

Lilies, the tulips

Are the people—

 

A fiery orange
