A Birthday Mandala with Fortunate Greeting

Pick a path/with heart
You have an active mind/and a keen imagination
Don’t worry/prosperity will knock on your door soon
Good luck follows you/stop and let it catch up

Coincidence?  Nina posted a mandala this morning too.  This is a Happy Birthday Mandala for Nina today.  It’s loosely based on one of the lovely cards she gave to me when we had lunch.

One of the NaPoWriMo prompts last week was to use fortune cookie fortunes to make a poem.  I found a bunch I had saved in a little popsicle stick jewelry box one of my daughters made me long ago, and picked out a few that would work in a cleave poem and as a birthday greeting.  OK, the last one is a fortune from a Bazooka Joe comic, but I decided it counted too.

Happy Birthday Nina!

    Your collage is fantastic, Kerfe! And I like how you put your fortunes together to create a poem. I save theses too – when we read them out loud we always add the words, “In bed” at the end. It makes it more humorous… And Happy Birthday Nina! :-)))
