Stress buster


Stress busters we all need, and they tend to be

As varied as people themselves, probably

Some run, exercise or practice meditation

For others, painting might be the solution

I tend to find paper and pen when stressed

Usually I write, that’s something I do best

But once in a while, when writer’s block appears

And no words I can think of to calm down my fears

I start doodling, creating abstract shapes of all kinds

Filling them in meticulously, clearing my mind

Of all other worries because drawing seems to take

More effort , more concentration for me to make

Something meaningful, or aesthetically pleasing

Gradually I feel my artistic muscles unfreezing

Soon I am in the flow and all thoughts negative

Have disappeared from my mind, I silently give

Thanks to my stars for calming me down

As I proceed with my work, I lose my frown

Now I realize why the markets are inundated

With adult coloring books, it is estimated

That slowly coloring in intricate designs 

Can be an excellent way of relaxing one’s mind


So, as the holiday shopping stresses me out

I shall resort to my sketching, without a doubt!
