Hi, everyone! Today I’m thrilled to share that Amethyst Review has published another of my poems. “How to Color a Mandala” was inspired by one evening of revising a favorite creative self-care activity. But as you’ll find out, the poem is about much more than an adult coloring book.

I tried to publish this comment on the web page, but it would not let me.
Here is my response to “How to Color a Mandala.” Sara, this poem is wonderful. As you wrote, there is a lot going on. The letting, or at least briefly suspending, the overstressed adult to let the child play, again. The freedom of creating without judgment. I smiled and laughed as I followed along on your coloring adventure. A delightful work, indeed.
Be well. Be safe. Be at peace.

Awwww, thank you so much, Billie! It was a fun poem to write, and I’m glad the ideas of letting one’s inner child come out to play and creating without judgment came through.
