By Erin and her Daughter
This poem was written by my 13 year old daughter and she wanted to share it for the Autism Positivity Flashblog 2014 – Expressions of PosAutivity. “Water and Waves” is my daughter’s comfort thought. She pictures water and waves in her mind when she is stressed and anxious. Thinking “Water and Waves” helps my daughter focus when her thoughts are all jumbled. My daughter communicates and expresses herself through poems, songs, and pictures. She is an amazingly creative person.
Written on April 14, 2014 – Inspired by the Disney Pocahontas song, “Just Around the River Bend”.
Down by the Riverside
Where the green grass grows
Where the animals graze
Where the kids play
Where the water flows
Where the fish swim
Where the green algae grows
