Using poetry to remember

Just another technique to restore and remember what I was able to see in years gone by.  Some people paint in order to remember.  I use words and music to do the same.  I use poetry to create pictures and I sure have a great time.

 

My words spark memories of blue skies, swaying trees, green grass, big fat white snowflakes, silver raindrops, fluffy white clouds, sunrises and sunsets, and so much more.  Colors come to life and faces dance in my mind.  Pictures appear and disappear and memories of occasions creep slowly across my mind.  Times at the beach with family and friends.  Ice skating on outdoor rinks, walking in the fields, and strolling along crowded sidewalks. 

 

In Church at Christmas, Santa Claus happily ringing his bell with kids crowded around, and a plethora of other things.  My beloved poetry helps me to conjure up all of these precious memories.  Ah, my thoughts for today.

 

I'm Donna J. Jodhan your friendly accessibility advocate wishing you a terrific day and inviting you to go out there and share my thoughts with others.  Visit www.acb.org or www.afb.org to learn what blind persons do in order to remember their past years when sight was with them.
