Binturong

A binturong is twice as long:

                You might have thought

                It’s very short -

                In spite of that

                It’s round and fat

A binturong is twice as long.

 

A binturong will get it wrong:

                It goes to school

                And plays the fool

                And makes an ass

                In every class

A binturong will get it wrong.

 

A binturong emits a pong:

             Does not wash well

             No shower gel

             And give up hope

             Of using soap

A binturong emits a pong.

 

A binturong will sing a song:

             High in its tree

             Beautiful harmony

             You may not hear

             Lest you come near

A binturong will sing a song.

I have just started my second year of the PhD in dementia care, and as attendee of the Public and Patient Involvement (PPI) meetings at the IMH, I have frequently met with people with dementia and their family carers and talked with them about their caring experience.

It was a real life, I think, those days
Of fairgrounds, brandy-snaps and hook-a-duck,
Singing on waltzers, we were children in love
With sugared lips and clasping foxglove bouquets...

Setting out to write a blog post about creativity begins as a rather meta process: a piece of creative writing on what it might mean to be creative. It’s easy to be seduced by the Romantic idea of creativity as being ‘lost in the moment’.
