take a chance today
feel the fierce exuberance
welling up inside you
give yourself permission
to color outside the lines
with every crayon
in your box (and then some!)
climb to the tip of a crescent moon
and dive headlong
into a waiting sea of rainbows
throw away the safety straw
you've been sipping through
and take great gulps
from the cup
of your beautiful life

Just beautiful - and your poem so inspiring. It is the perfect combination for this time of year! And the perfect message for artist and non-artist alike!

Throw away the drinking straw! Great stuff.

BTW, have I told you that when I move to Africa, the inside of my house is going to look like a paint box exploded??? :D
