It’s Good for our Brains

Coloring - 2015

It’s Good for our Brains

It’s good for our brains the experts proclaim,
Using big words to define
The sublime sense of ease
We feel while coloring abstract designs,

Choosing hues to amuse us,
We lose our sense of time
And the need to confine our thoughts
To worries of the day,

Bringing calm to our nerves,
Our thoughts converge
On shading, balance and color,
While other concerns fall away,

So, take time to play and color today,
You might be surprised
By the way that you feel,
And the way that you deal
With stressors the following day.

The design I colored came from the book Balance by Angie Grace.
