Color Therapy

Paint selfie cactus sunset

Release my dark thoughts
Swirl them into deep blue sky
Focus on the now
Anxious orange jealous green
Let my brush paint stress away

  3. anxious orange

    Really? I never thought of orange as anxious… not really sure I ever thought about it as anything, actually, but it’s one of my favorite colors.

    And- beautiful poem and painting, Paula!
