Writers Island " Renewal"

Rene Newal
Prompt for this week is " Renewal"
Renewal
For just a moment
forget who I used to be
Explore my rebirth
Please no longer ask me to create
A masterpiece in the kitchen
I’ve traded laboring over red hot elements
For the harmonious tapping of keys
I have replaced telephone calls for emails
The morning crosswords ritual has been set aside
for challenging games of online scrabble
I’ve swapped mesmerizing television time
For even more compelling computer moments
Of reading, blogging and connecting
It’s been a delight to exchange
The beckoning bully, tedious housework,
For flicks of a brush soaked in acrylic
And the marching of the mouse
Through a digital paint program
Into fulfilling art pieces that will linger
More beautifully than dust
I have traded social time
For bathing in silence
Waiting for heavenly guidance
And god’s gentle whispers
I’ve switched my perfectionist stance
For a more creative, peaceful, lax, happy me
All in the name of renewal

A very witty poem. I like the idea of renewal as an exchange, a change, not a starting over.

Your artwork is very fun and bright!
