UNDERSTAND CATS WITHOUT WORDS
Same with baby's sounds/elders post-stroke
speech is the least left tool .Other ways
to know and understand-to watch eyes/
listen for sounds (subterranean-but familiar
Most of all-to know another in a pre-verbal
post-verbal way-to reach inside all limits
and learn what they have to say.
There are those whose body limits all they do
from Dr Stephen Hawking to ALS to stroke victims
This is where we expand our listening skills-
to hear from those still here with us
reaching out to keep these human links/alive!
