cascade

falling
gravitating
sheer and continuous
sparkled currents rising
in reflection
flowing

A badger’s hexastitch for Colleen’s #TankaTuesday prompt, the photo by Trent McDonald, below.

Trent’s photo made me think of all of Sue Vincent’s photo prompts, and all the watercolor mandalas I painted in response to her images. Thanks, Trent, for the equally magical landscape.

This badger’s hexastitch has a very cinquain-like feel to me–not intentional, but I think it works.

    Kerfe, Sue Vincent would have loved this painting (my jaw dropped at the beauty of the waterfall) and your lovely poetry to go with it. I think you captured the flow of life and living, two things Sue did very well. I love this!! ❤

    So lovely, Kerfe. I recognized Trent’s waterfall immediately in your painting. And a beautiful poem. The post is reminiscent of your responses to Sue’s prompts.
