Continuing on with the gratitude journal. Had to resurrect some old work into a new format because this is my busy season for selling books and the day went by too fast.
I am grateful for paint
my steadfast friend
fresh from the tube
and full of surprises.
I can take you anywhere
without need to feed or spend too much
We always fit together so well.
You are so faithful
more than a woman could ask for,
except when you dry up.
I totally understand.
The pencils and pens are more than happy to fill in.
Art, you are my pun-shine.
If I ever get too old for you I will surely suffer.
Journal prompt: Do you do any drawing or painting? Write about how art may, or may not, help your writing.
