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!
