Poefusion Monday Mural


Tea Rorschach was originally uploaded to Flickr by Jennifer Hines. This piece is the subject of Poefusion Monday Mural prompt.

I find the monoprint style of the picture to be fascinating. Once upon a long ago, I attended a scry workshop and in intervening years have designed watercolor monoprints.

rust stained pekoe prints
dribbled in the course of scry

This is great Tumblewords. I love this haiku. But then, I am yet to see you write a bad one. I am pleased you liked this prompt so well and that it related to something you have done in your lifetime. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice day.

The Haiku, I love. It must have been fascinating to attend a workshop on scry. I would love to.

This is a really beautiful haiku!! I love the words you chose -- rust stained, pekoe, dribbled, scry and Druid -- to me, these all evoke incredible images of mysterious patterns. Very cool. I awarded you with an "Excellent Blog" award! See my March 2 post for details.

It took me a while to work out what "pekoe" prints were... now I really like that phrase! You've fitted a lot into a small space - the essence of a good haiku!

Very nicely done.
I've come across scrying before, and I predict I will again :-)

You are a master of the short form. You find the most pungent words to tell a pithy story.
