“Weed Mandala”

September 3, 2011


The prompt this week at One Single Impression is “Weed” as suggested by Gabrielle.

My haiku:

My weeds have flowers
They can be stubby or tall
Enjoy their beauty 

Interesting word to make poetry out of as well as a mandala.  I enjoyed the challenge.

    Hi Terri,

    Your mandala and haiku are lovely!

    I love the bag I bought from the photo I took that you painted.

    Weeds are some of the most beautiful flowers. Love this mandala and poem. The poem gives the weed it’s due.

    Teri, your mandala flowers are beautiful. This time I do believe the poem describes the mandala rather than the mandala illustrating the haiku. They both are lovely though. 🙂

    I agree! Weeds can look really beautiful. As delicate as in your mandala!

    Teri, I like the colours in this mandala, and the “spatter” effect is pretty.
    I think we do need to be appreciate nature’s weeds, or wildflowers. Yes, some are toxic, and should be removed, but many are part of a complex ecosystem and have a purpose.

    I have always enjoyed the groundcover kind of weeds, and remember as a child picking them, and considering them flowers.

    Thanks everyone.
    I obtained this effect using watercolor pencils on sandpaper and as the pieces hit the paper, they disperse in this pretty way.

    Love both the haiku and the mandala! I really love seeing poetry combined with other art forms.
