Myth Mandala

July 13, 2008

The prompt at One Single Impression this week is ‘myth’ suggested by Suijin.

I thought I would have trouble writing a haiku for this but it just seemed to write itself:

Love is not a myth
The dreamy look, the soft touch
Its just magical!

(Still the romantic 🙂

Then I saw a flower that inspired the mandala.   I thought it worked so well with what I had written.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Love is perhaps the only “real” thing…everything else is just a stage on which to act out love….great! Love the mandala!!

    Thanks for stopping by everyone. I am still making my way through all the haiku on OSI.

    I think I have taken the moderation of commenst off so will be anxious to see when someone comments if it works.

    I always try to guess what you are going to draw for each prompt. So far, I have only guessed right once! Lovely reminder of the real thing.

    Love is magical and so are your mandalas!

    Wonderful mandala and I love that romantic streak. Lovely haiku and clever way to approach the prompt.

    Hi Teri, This drawing has an outerspace quality to it. Lots of fun.
    I wanted to let you know about an opportunity to do a tele-conference with Judith Cornell through a Yahoo group called Mandala Oasis.
    Feel free to contact me for more info.

    This is my favorite of your mandalas so far. Keep on drawing and writing.

    So unique, Terri. the spokes remind me of those Slurpee straws! (I use those to pick up small beads when I’m making jewelry). You are a wonderful artist… your work makes me smile.
    And I do love the Haiku.. I’d like to do more of that, but it doesn’t yet seem to just write itself like you mention. Any tips for me to get the flow going? I do adore haiku.

    Have a good night!
    🙂 Cheryl
