Following Threads

A poem found in Science Alert in an article by Peter Dockrill

in paint-laden brushstrokes
fractal patterns trace
cognitive changes
like snowflakes
and replicating
in each work of art
analysing artists’ souls
following flimsy threads
of neurodegenerative decline

Kim M. Russell, 2016
