Praise be
to the tangle,
the dance unraveling
the ending to begin again–
Praise be
to branches outing from deep roots,
the threads that multiply
and intertwine–
Praise be

A butterfly cinquain for Colleen’s tanka Tuesday words, honor and growth.  Also a little carryover from the SpiritSong of yesterday’s post.

And maybe partially on prompt for NaPoWriMo day 4.

In case you’re wondering how I did this piece of art so quickly, 6 months ago I decided to start making art to use for NaPoWriMo.  This is the very first one I did.

All of my artwork for April is based on/inspired by the work of Joan Mitchell.

      The left photo is my original embroidery. Then I just kind of wove in and around that on top with more embroidery floss. The right photo is the back of it. I was inspired by an abstract painting by Joan Mitchell. I’ll post all the paintings I used as inspiration at the end of the month.
      Thanks Jill!
