Feeding the Child

Had an epiphany today.

I realized I haven’t fed

my creative side for

ever so long. I’d been

too grown up,

too serious,

too concerned about others

at my own expense.

The salve was simple;

putting colored pencils to work

on a coloring book I got somewhere.

An hour passed quickly, quietly,

and felt like a massage.

And now I have this pen

working on different paper

beneath the gentle green leaves

of Friend Oak.

Fun to tune out the noisy world

for at least a while.

The inner child is content.
