Healing with paint

posted in: Poems 2016 | 0

Prompted by the two words on her initial assessment ‘Likes art’.

I laid out the therapy room With an array of art material

From oil paintings to crayons She entered the room along side me

To explore

She was struggling to communicate

She was having a bad day Where she could not talk

Found it hard to put her thoughts Her emotions into words

Lacked emotional literacy

Until she picked up a paintbrush

Applied it to the canvas To create To craft A world I could see

A world I could now enter With permission
