Rocken' It


Linking with Wed Muse # 4 for Toni's prompt ~Busy Body
Today Toni is talking about being busy and asking us, what do we do to rest?
Come join us!

Prologue
I have the good fortune to work at a library, but it is not any ordinary library, it resides inside a beautiful botanical garden.  We provide different programs to the public for all ages, and many of these are crafty fun projects that have to do with nature.  Recently we had a rock painting craft.   All my co-workers and I have taken such a liking to it, most of us do it in our spare time.  I have found it to be quite relaxing!  Therefore, when I am home and in my comfy PJs cause that is the only way I roll; comfortable, I sit at my second desk, a card table in my writing/ art room, and paint rocks.  I am not very good at it, but it does not seem to stop me.  I love doing it anyway!

Naked with the beauty God gave you
You lay before me
Resting under my awkward grace
My brush strokes you blue
Until you are a true star
You wink and give a kiss with rouge lips
 and my brush rests in its dixie cup pool
now you dance upon eyes
cause you are ready to rock!

Wow. What a wonderful place to work! A library is the bomb but in a botanical garden...way beyond. I like the rocks you have painted. So very cool. And your description of it is super wonderful.

Thank you Toni! You are right I am very lucky to work where I do. I am thrilled you like the rocks I have painted. I second guess each one I do.
