A class I'm taking from my BFF Caryn-so fun and relaxing!
Artistic outlets were RARE earlier in my former life,
a few poems now and then, a flyer or poster got designed,
a book cover or invitation; teaching dancing took over my days,
until motherhood and jobs to support my family entered.
Zentangle has come into my life now, a NEW hobby
to develop and EXPRESS my artistic talents long buried.
As a child I loved to doodle in abstract patterns
then life with its responsibilities entered with demands.
Now it's retirement time, space to develop ME after
a lifetime of mothering and being a supportive wife.
Me time is available without URGENT responsibilities.
I choose to write and doodle, design in pen and ink.
Peace flows as I concentrate, relax and let develop
artistic yearnings deep within, poems follow too.
satisfaction increases as blood pressure and sugar
levels lower. I am at peace. ZENTANGLE lives!
