Mandala Stone #6

Mind, Heart and Soul

Ancients tell us
thrice braided cord
lends strength,
protective power,
and is not easily

    I have been collecting your mandalas and not commenting until I had several reactions under my belt. I see each mandala before I see your poems because of the email format. And, I have an instant reaction. So far, in all six cases you and I see the mandalas in the exact same way. It’s getting spooky. Now I’m curious to see if/when we diverge!

      Lol, we probably will now that you expressed that reality. I simply love the synchronicity of what you say in your comment. It is very satisfying to know that others find same or similar things in the designs and colors. And I realize that simply coloring them, I impart a bit of my own spirit to whatever is expressed. Because we do have strong commonalities regarding creativity and self-expression, it really shouldn’t be all that surprising. Yet it is, and the child in me delights in that reality. Thank you so much, Margo,



  2. I love the “thrice-braided cord” and the wisdom of the ancients. Mystical and wonderful.

    Hi Sherry, there is a lot of myth and legend regarding the Circle of Three, but this adage is my favorite. Thanks for visiting,

    Beautiful piece. I am enjoying each mandala you post and the writing of it.

      Glad to hear that and that you are enjoying the whole thing. I was a bit leery about doing it, but seem to be finding my sea legs, as they say. It’s something I’ve wanted to try for a while and am glad that I finally gave myself permission to do that. Thanks for sticking with me, Renee,
