Why write and why write creatively?
Writing provides a platform for ideas and a channel for communication. Different perspectives can enlighten us, teaching us, It can inspire as well as educate.
Busy like bees
buzzing with ideas
The writers pollinate our lives
with the sweet honeyed words
Collecting the pollen
From our floweris of emotions
Taking them back to
The hive of creativity
Where they blend
Sweet nectar to concepts
Stored in the
honeycomb of books
Ruled by their queen
Our dreams with wonder
Why can this be of help to someone with Parkinson’s?
