Living the dream

Happy in my dream, my health exudes

With youth and long forgotten vigour

Where Parkinsons cannot intrude

In this place he does not figure


But there I cannot long remain

As the dawn invades my space

inevitably I must try again

To put a smile on this blank face


Take that first unstable stride

Again those words ' You're looking good '

No , it's just that I can hide

And surely would do if I could


I know it shouldn't be a re-write and ,I admit, it could be argued as such. However the challenge inspired me to write this, so that's my excuse :-)

Keith , Bravo, it is always, always best to go with what you 'feel' and I'm very pleased that you did, it's not really a re write anyway. I'll post my original at the end of the month.and explain what inspired me.

There should be a whole anthology on Parkinson's dreams! Thought provoking - good job.

Waking with Parkinsons is like Groundhog Day so its inevitable that some themes are going to be recurrent. Enjoyed this.
