“Miss Mandala”

June 12, 2011


I created this mandala and haiku in response to the prompt of ‘miss’ at One Single Impression as suggested by Harshad Meta

Did I miss summer?
Yesterday it was ninety
Today it’s fifty

Thanks for a fun prompt Harshad.

The crazy weather that we have been having really made me write this haiku with a matching mandala:  icicle for the cold and droopy daisy for the heat.

    Hi Terri ~~ No, you didn’t miss summer. 🙂 Unil June 21st it’s still spring on the calandar. Such a pretty mandala with the daisy again, the haiku fits wonderfully.

    Your title prompted me to think of the old 60’s song, “San Francisco (be Sure To Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair).

    If you’re going to San Francisco
    Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
    If you’re going to San Francisco
    You’re gonna meet some gentle people there
    For those who come to San Francisco
    Summertime will be a love-in there

    Hello Teri.
    This is a very creative way to describe the ups & downs of the weather.

    Thanks for sharing and for your kind sentiments over at my blog.

    We must be in the same part of the country. Oppressive heat in the morning yesterday, went a couple hours north and it was freezing in the afternoon. The mandala looks like how I would expect the temperature map to be. 🙂

    I love Jim’s song…and I fairly know that song I can sing it by heart! 😀
    Beautiful Mandala Teri!
    I missed summer here coz I did not have time to dip my tired body in the cool waters of the ocean.
    Summer here in our country is going to the beach! 🙂

    sorry your Haiku has me laughing….. it just sucks when it is nice and warm/hot one day then is cold the next. This is the era of odd weather! Love the Mandala it is gorgeous the patterns of color remind me of mother earth!
