Five Minute Friday — Coloring

It’s Friday.

Let’s do it. Let’s just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.


Coloring inside the lines


Outlining the shapes with chosen color

Color carefully
filling all the area
shading as evenly as possible

Don’t cross the lines.

A controlled activity the only choice is what color.

Shaped for me was predetermined for a long time

Coloring in the lines was

full of joy for the accomplishment of filling the space perfectly.

but now the shape is confining, limiting, stifling,
the creation of another

Is now the time
to take a leap, to dare, to pick up a color that doesn’t match the shape–
and with abandon
cross the line
with bright happy coloring.

WAIT! Where are the lines?

  1. Be Bold!!! 🙂 I have to break myself out of the controlled lines every now and again too. I love your thoughts here.
