Art As Therapy

Updated: Jul 13, 2020

A poem

Self Portrait

Art and poetry help me.

Doing my art lets me see.

My poetry lets me be Branwen,

now instead of when.

Art shows me the spiritual,

and that can be lyrical.

Poetry comes from a different place,

and fills me with grace.

Art produces the visible,

and that is often whimsical.

Poetry creates the auditory,

and gets me out of my mental purgatory.

Art and poetry are therapeutic,

and provide me with a rubric.

That leads to more self-made interventions,

and that results in new creations.
