My Soothing Vice

When life bites and strikes stress deep within, My escape options will start to spin. I require an outlet for relief. A personal lift aids this belief. Constantly close is my favored vice For it soothes me and is low in price. My vice doesn’t manifest paradise, But soft peace that eases my weary eyes. Coloring books and pretty crayons Are my way to escape rough ground. My drawing vice won’t harm my body. I’ve never colored and felt sorry. Coloring creates calm so stress flees. My adored vice is passion that frees. This vice soothes the child within my heart This vice prods fears to quickly depart. When I’m not home and must sleep away, I’ll tote my vice to assist my stay... At night, my vice sets a snug-sleep stage If first I color one stiff, strong page. ... CayCay July 30, 2021

There is something very mindful about colouring. I think it’s impossible to be sad with a crayon in one’s hand. Add an orange popsicle in the other hand and you have the perfect day. Hugs Rick.

Hi CayCay, You've penned a good entry for the contest theme. What a lovely vice that doesn't harm anyone. I will not look at crayons and a coloring book the same. Best wishes in the contest. Have a great evening. PS, I have missed you; it's good to see you posting again:-) Alexis
