“Betrayal Mandala”

September 17, 2011

imageThe prompt at One Single Impression this week is Betrayal as suggested by Leo.

Is it betrayal
When the petals turn all brown
No, it’s natural
Nature’s way is wonderful
It never dies, just renews

    These words are so true.
    This mandala is lovely. The delicate lines, and colours together fit well the poem I think, as well as the fall theme.It has an elegaic feel to it.

    Hi Terri ~~ Your words are telling me that we shouldn’t mess with Mother Nature. She tells all in due time.
    I love the leafy mandala too. It is fine enough to be on silk but I believe those leaves are the real things just that they came from your pens. 🙂

    Much as I dislike autumn and winter I’ve never though of them as betrayals… Interesting perspective!

    Thanks everyone. I painted the leaves on the mandala and while I have used the image before it was so appropriate for this tanka I had to bring it back for an encore.

    Beautifully done Teri! The image works so well with the words which work so well with the season change! I do not mind this kind of betrayal!

    Mother Nature has it under control and puts a show of beauty as she changes the colors of her leaves before going to sleep for the Winter…

    At first i couldn’t understand how this beautiful image and the word betrayal fit together. Then I read your poem. Perfect! I do love this mandala – all the seasons of life. Visually beautiful as well as good food for thought.

    Hi Teri,

    Thank you for visiting me, and your kind words.

    Your ‘Painted Daisies’ blog is on my blogroll, but I didn’t know about this one! It’s fascinating. And this leaf design – it’s shown me that there’s more than one way to do a mandala! I love the idea, I love the colours… simply brilliant 🙂

    How gorgeous your leaves are! I love all the different colors as you go around the circle. Our leaves are still green down here, but soon they will be changing as the weather gets nippier.
