ensorcelled by time–
repeating forms, I cross the
signs marking the gap,

the shift from circle to square–
caught on the edges of lines

I’ve used synonyms for Colleen’s words this week, enchant and shape, for my tanka for  NaPoWriMo Day 25.

The art, inspired by Joan Mitchell’s “Bonjour Julie”, is done on graph paper (at a recent exhibit of Josef Albers’ work I noted that he started with graph paper for some of his work as well).

jm9a in processThis is the way I used to present my sweater designs…marker dots of the various colors to show the pattern.  I decided to cross stitch over this design, and I like the combination of texture and color on both front and back.  And, well, grids…

    Fascinating. I like the way you follow threads of thought to create new art work on top of old ones.

    Wow! I love the squares and circles and patterns. I crochet with thread and make doilies (filet crochet). There is something so soothing about the repeating patterns that I see in your Tanka and in your own patterns. Brilliant! ❤

    I misread your last word lines as time, which gives it a different meaning, but somehow related.
    The patterns and stitching, the repetition–so interesting.
