Brain Calming

 

I don’t kid myself that it’s a work of art

when I get out my canvas and gather my threads.

I’m not an artist as I follow the charts,

stitch by stitch, slowly forming a complete picture.

 

Someone else has done the designing – the art part belongs to them.

 

And even when the finished canvas gets folded away, hidden in a box,

it doesn’t matter. I tell myself maybe one day.

 

The needle has done its job in calming my agitated brain.
