Adding some whimsy to the flimsy

whimsy
/ˈwɪmzi/
noun
1. playfully quaint or fanciful behaviour or humour.
2. a whim.

Meeting at an international chaplains conference,
We were talking about how to help art students
step out of the pressure of producing.

I mentioned mindful doodling,
Ruth remarked on how this sounded flimsy,
Proffering go with the flimsy.

I so had to doodle that,
Adding a little whimsy along the way.
Ruth came to me the next morning with a poem.

You’ve got to love what’s possible
in the flimsy.
