    Visual art and the written words can go so well together but a mosaic and this minded fullness in ‘the here and now’ Haiku go wonderful well together !! A good start of my day, thank you!! Xo Johanna

    Thanks for this collage. It reminds me of a labyrinth–an ancient maze. And also it’s kind of in the shape of a human brain–that other ancient maze.

    Wonderful work and much appreciated. –Peter

      Thank you, Peter, for letting me share your haiku. The collage was directly inspired by your words, and definitely echoes both labyrinth and brain.

    That is stunning! It looks like an actual mosaic made of ceramic or glass tiles. Great job.
