Circle Of Inspiration

March 16, 2008

I recently found “One Single Impression”  thanks to Lisa At Artsy Endeavors.  One Single Impression is a community of poets writing and sharing haiku and poetry.  There is a prompt every Sunday to inspire the poetry in us.  The prompt this week is “Circle”.  How could I resist using a mandala:)  Plus I love writing haiku in the 5-7-5 format.

I posted this mandala to accompany the haiku.

A circle of love

A place of inspiration

To share with you all.

Thanks for inviting me here Lisa.

More haiku here.  Sometimes art leads me to writing haiku and sometimes haiku leads me to art.

Be sure to look at my Painted Daisies Blog on Monday for the St Patrick Cactus Monday.

    This is the blog for mandalas. You are marvelous and I can’t help wondering what gives you the inspiration for all of the designs. I am in awe. This prompt was for you.

    Indeed, considering your journal’s theme, how could you possibly resist?
    Nice mandalas.

    Oh Teri, I am so happy you found this prompt. I was going to nag you a little if you didn’t post something for this prompt. I just love your mandalas. I tried one. I just don’t have the precision of the style. I am sort of a sloppy, I like to think free flowing, in my work. 😉 I shall improve!!!

    Thanks everyone. Lisa, it was you that put me over the edge as I love haiku.
    Yes, I thought this prompt was made for me and I thank you 🙂
    Most of my mandalas are free-form. I thought I would try a more symetrical one with this one and it was okay, but I love free-wheeling with these.

    What a perfect fit for you….I can forsee a whole book of haiku to accompany each of your mandalas…You go girl!!!!

    Very lovely. I enjoyed the painted daisy too. Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

    I used to be a quilter of very simple, practical and useful quilts. I’m sure you’re familiar with Medallion quilts, which are quite intricate and far too challenging for my patience, but the Mandela reminded me immediately of Medallion Quilts. Intricate, amazing and comforting. Beautiful. Art & Poetry fit together like the pieces of the quilt, don’t they?

    Thanks WillThink4Wine (love that name) I am a former quilter and never really put quilting and mandalas together before. When I quilted I loved putting bright colors together. Maybe quilt patterns and fabric have been lurking in mind and influencing my art. Thanks for the connection.
