Crayons' Lessons

We could learn a lot from crayons.

Some are sharp,
Some are pretty,
Some are dull

Some have wierd names

Some are broken
Some are whole,
Some are old,
Some are new

And all are different colours
But they all have to live in the same box.


  1. You are right. Don't you love to get a new box of crayons, even as an adult. I have a box my Granny actually used occasionally. She dies unexpectedly in 2004, and I cherish that box.

  2. Old memories pop up, see myself sitting in my girly dress in kindergarden...sigh Love what you write about these little colorful guys. Some times the lines are just my life right now and hell I don't wanna live in a box with non colorful and dull crayons....grrr ;-)

  3. We have learned a lot from crayons - I liked your comment about all different colours living in the same box.

  4. The smell, the texture of them, the magic they create. God bless Crayons!

  5. This was fun! And, I'm like JFKlaver, I love the smell of Crayolas!

    Joyce, I still need your snail mail address, hon.

  6. Crayons have always inspired me.

    Joyce my business is growing and I am having to reprioritise my time. I want you to know that I will still be reading your blog but I will not be commenting as I have up until now.

    Hoping that you understand.


  7. Macaroni and Cheese crayon colour!!! How perfect - that's the one for me :) I love this post Joyce. So true!
