Color Mandala

April 19, 2008


The prompt at “One Single Impression” this week is ‘color’.   This was such a fun prompt.

It’s fractured color
Bits of red and blue and green
Like splinters of joy!

Visit “One Single Impression” for more haiku and poetry.

More art and haiku here.

    For a moment I thought it was a “fractal” but I see that is not the case. It is really a mosaic isn’t it? My take on the theme is not dis-similar in some ways.

    “Splinters of joy” makes me think of an energy so great it cannot be contained so bursts through its container in delightful ways.

    Thank you for the mandala. As I learn about these wonderful works, I begin to see them as poems, too.

    Your color mandala is beautiful! Did you do this?

    I like how you implemented color in “splinters of joy”. It’s such a vivid phrase!

    Splinters of joy! Love that! Nicely done.

    Thanks everyone. Yes, I did this mandala with the haiku. They just seem to go together so well. You all know how it is, the words just seem to write themselves,
    and it works the same when I do a mandala, it just seems to draw itself.
    zg, shall I fire you with color?

    I don’t remember this site Teri! I’m glad you left the link to it. The mandalas are wonderful!! I’m looking forward to doing more of them myself. I know what you mean about “just letting them happen.”

    You have linked the picture with the haiku well. I have tried writing haiku and it can be addictive in a way. But I’m still fairly new in poem writing and I tend to write rhyming ones. Glad I found One Single Impression and hoping to visit other poem blogs over time.

    Fun – love the words and the vibrant mandala!

    Your haiku and the mandala go together so well. I really like the ‘splinters of joy’. What a bright, vibrant image!

    Beautiful! I am going to try one of these someday. If it is decent, I will show you. The haiku works really well with the mandala.

    Pure gorgeousness. (I hope that’s a word.) I love the last line and I simply adore the image.
