Mandala Stone #13

Black and White Existence

May look appealing
promise a certain ease,
but is difficult
to juggle
when shadows
as they will,
eventually causing
as it drifts
toward a space
of muted grayness.

Mandala Stone #13: This is a zentangle Mandala, drawn free hand with pen and ink. I played with it digitally and liked what happened. We need color in our lives to better express our thoughts and feelings. A black and white existence becomes small and limiting very quickly.
