Tan paper, black and white ink
I saw this quote from Plato and knew I had to create a mandala to go with it.
Creating mandalas and writing poetry to accompany them is so relaxing and fulfilling
I needed two cinquains (2,4,6,8 and 1 syllables) to finish this mandala.
You just need time
Time to be inspired
And just let your muse take over
When I was finished with the mandala I wrote this cinquain:
Such pretty colors
Yellow, blue, green and orange
They all compliment each other
This Tanka and mandala is based on a quote from Socrates.: “Wisdom begins in wonder.”
You pose the question
‘Hmmmm, I wonder about that?’
Look for the answer
And wisdom becomes wonder
Socrates told us that
Ps, I wonder why I can’t get these lines closer…..I need to research that.
Enough with the rain! Give it to those that need it!!
Ps, oops, I meant to post this on my other Blog. https://teri2creations.wordpress.com
I miss the desert…because I am in cold, gray Wisconsin, so I created this mandala and haiku.
I miss the desert.
