chaos and creation

there’s madness in the art room
it’s seeping out the door
a plethora of paper
is strewn across the floor

a mass of stamping letters
is smudged with dark brown ink
the brushes are awaiting
their bath time in the sink

bits of pastel art chalk
lie jumbled in their tin
it’s been a day of chaos
creation is the sin

the shins made an appearance
eddie vedder crooned along
crosby, stills and credence
filled my heart with song

all thru the “artsy” singing
my pal was presley dear
he slept under the table
so nice to have him near

now the sun is setting
it’s almost time to rest
but wait, just one more project
this might just be the best!

Hey Julie, thanks for visiting my blog. Your poem makes me smile and it makes me want to get downstairs to my pile of torn paper and glue!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I really love working with paper. It is rather new to me, but I really like to cut and paste. I laugh and say that I am just like a first grader. Looking foward to looking at your older posts.
