“Two Leaves Mandala”

May 4, 2011


The mandala and poem were created for the “Thursday Poet’s Rally“.

Two leaves followed me home today
Dancing and skipping behind me
Such delightful companions
To share my morning walk with

So we all danced along
To the tune of the bluebird’s song
Two leaves
One bird
and me

Thank you Poet’s Rally!

I nominate Thingy.

    Thanks for stopping by. This actually happened to me on my walk: suddenly I could hear leaves on the road behind me and the thought jumped in my head…’two leaves are following me home’ and the poem developed from there.

    The mandala is so pretty, and cheerful with the bluebird there.
    And the poem fits it just right!

    This mandala is perhaps one of my favorites. It is warm and inviting and, well, completely appealing. And your words carried me along on the walk!

    Lovely – I like both the mandala and poem, they go together so well (but I can’t resist saying I like the picture especially!).
