Residents of Meadow Woods Assisted Living and students from Bloomington Public Schools Galaxy Summer of Service program recently embarked on an 8-week poetry journey. They were guided by wonderful artists from the Alzheimer's Poetry Project of Minnesota. This project is designed to build relationships, activate the senses and spark imagination. Together, they created poems honoring each participant's unique voice and experience. Special thanks to the Minnesota Regional Arts Council for supporting this intergenerational collaboration.
Here is one of the lovely poems written by our group entitled, Let the Rain...
Let the Rain kiss racism so it will disappear
Let the Rain kiss my sister so she will listen better
Let the Rain kiss the ocean so it will be clean
Let the Rain kiss the turtles so the straws get out of noses
Let the Rain kiss all the little critters so they become normal
Let the Rain kiss the hate, turning it into kindness
Let the Rain kiss the living things going extinct
Let the Rain kiss small sailboats on the lake so it cleans the sailors and crew
Let the Rain kiss everyone with dementia so they remember again
Let the Rain kiss humanity so we have compassion for every person's life experiences
