Weekend Reflection: Simple Things

Starting a new group,
wondering what the clients will be like
I begin to set up the supplies.

Crayons, markers, glue sticks,
pens, scissors, pastels and chalk.
They are simple things.

They invite exploration,
they don't intimidate
and they welcome the timid.

The clients come in,
they all choose their seats 
and almost instinctively reach out and touch the supplies.
Most ask for a piece of paper.

Let's start.



  1. An art group? Sounds so much fun! :)

  2. Yes Linsay, it is a 6 week art therapy group that I am running. It is a lot of fun :)
