“Endure Mandala”

June 4, 2011


The prompt at One Single Impression this week is ‘Endure’ as suggested by me.

My tanka:
The daisies endure
Their beauty goes on and on
For our enjoyment
They live the world over
In colors of the rainbow 

I also submitted this to Poetry Potluck.

    Hi Terri ~~ This is a perfect tanka for your beautiful daisy mandala. 🙂 Daisies are Mrs. Jim’s favorite flowers.

    Also thank you for the nice prompt word. I enjoyed working with it.
    I didn’t work too much though, we just got back from Nebraska and Iowa after attending my high school reunion.

    Your mandala is outstanding Teri, wonderful! The tanka, a perfect match in words. Your prompt I found challenging but I rose to the challenge! Thank you.

    God’s one of His most beautiful gifts to mankind!
    For writing a Tanka, you did it well Teri… 🙂
    Have not tried writing one, but soon maybe!
    As always, your mandalas are beautiful in whatever shapes
    and forms you make them!

    Sad, I had to write the prompt for something I have to endure
    for the week…hopefully it will heal soon and the bruises will not remain!

    Love the choice of daisies as a symbol of endurance! Winter is here now in Australia and still the daisies live on! And it’s amazing how many varieties there are! Adore the magic of your beautiful mandala!

    Beautiful Mandala. Imaginative words.

    I like the thought of something so fragile enduring. Numerous individuals and types allow us to almost always find a daisy around us.

    This is a great tanka Teri and the Mandala is perfect. The contrast of the white daisy to the rainbow of colors really grabs your attention.

    This is really wonderful, Teri. There are daisies up and down the road I walk every day, and they endure, for sure. They are beautiful, clean, bright–difficult to photograph, yet delightful.

    Yes, daises stay fresh for long. Your art and words delight mind. Thanks for the wonderful prompt.
