When I find myself alone:

The Apple tree is calling |Gather my crayons @AbuNana.com

Gather my crayons and color book!

Gather my crayons and color book!
I'm leaving home today.
My apple tree is full of blossoms
Softly bewitching my sight,
Oh, it's good to have such a delight!

I'm leaving home today.
To visit my favorite tree.
The tree is growing just like me,
Its bark is bursting at the seams.
Oh, it's good to sit with these daydreams!

There’s sap oozing escaping its seams.

What's this? A tiny, green worm,
inching its way to my book
I see it has set its course
on the flower near the babbling brook!
Oh, it's good to have such a good look!

Oh, what a special place I’ve found.

My color book is on my lap.
Crayons hanging in a bag.
My feet against the tree trunks,
My back eased.
Oh, it's good to be so pleased!

My worm leaves, a pattern of holes

I've run away from home
To the birds, butterflies, worms.
They know where I am and find interest in me.
A butterfly is not too busy to land and say hi.
Oh, it's good to be gentle and shy!

As I begin to color, I add some shadings
And then I add kitties and doodles of joy.
I draw my family sitting with me in the tree.
We hang out and laugh, and sing, we are free!
Oh, it's good to leave home today!

…. and I’m glad to return home, I might say!

Manny and I spend our days as close to creative projects as possible. We inflate our views with as much positivity as we dare muster. We come up out of the clouds of adulthood and find joy. Manny is a great cook. He shines at being a brilliant listener, and loves to test, encourage and applaud the perceived success of others. Barbara is joyful creativity. She wakes up with hope and sets about showering her world with buds of ideas and ways of thinking.
