For Creativity Challenge Day 30: Beautiful
Have to admit, even though I knew what to expect, I was shocked.
All of the thousands of questions being asked, would go unanswered,
dismissed as the world looked on in fascinated wonder, or amusement,
or glee, or whirling confusion, fear, dismay, and a thousand other responses.
Knew I needed to find the quiet within. Nurture my soul, so my heart and mind could go on functioning. Withdrew, for an hour or two. Surrounded myself with making something beautiful: that which attracts the eyes, mind, and heart, while quietly nurturing the soul.
with this rainbow
of own making:
Purple of personal power,
the blue of quiet knowing.
Green of growth,
and yellow of sunshine’s
Riches of gold,
and oranges, reds
of creative fire
to warm my soul,
let me go on
the present moment
