waves s

vast, rhythmic
gathering, devouring, relinquishing
lunar compass that weaves

This didactic cinquain is in response to Colleen’s tanka Tuesday prompt words, give and receive, and Sue Vincent’s photo prompt of waves, below.

My art at the moment is very round. This mandala is watercolor, which was then monoprinted with acrylic, and watercolored again.

    This is a great response to these two prompts. I like the way you have taken the word prompt and the image prompt and woven them into a work which is so completely reflects your own authentic creative expression.

    Round is the way to go 😉 The third line is powerful in both meaning and in the ocean sound it creates.

    I liked the idea of the moon weaving tides. It does seem like what it is doing with the waving back and forth. Also nice watercolor at the top. The perfect circle holds together all those wilder colors.

    HI Kerfe -I like that there is a little color spilling out from the contained circle, it’s like dipping your toe in the ocean. The art and words inspire me today.
