“Dream Mandala”

August 7, 2011

The prompt at One Single Impression this week is “Dreams”.

I have been dreaming
That my vision was good
Then the dream came true
Two doctors made it better
Now I am back creating 

This prompt was perfect for me.  I had to take a blogging break to have surgery on my eye.  I had scar tissue removed from my retina and a cataract removed with a lens implanted.

I am still recovering my vision a little bit everyday but when I saw the prompt I had to write this tanka.

    Hi Teri ~~ Been missing you. I was thinking that Wisconsin was too exciting for you to take time for drawing and writing. 😥 This was perfect timing for you to start up again.
    The mandala is a wonderful eye. Love your tanka, it is just oozing with thankfulness.
    Dreams and doctors can do wonders! I am three weeks in recovering (July 18) from a total left knee replacement.
