  1. Oh, this is so beautiful, it just takes me right into the Light! Thank you for creating and sharing this, O and om!

  2. Hey O and OM,

    Scintillating! Like a supernova :)

    …I have read that the 7-pointed star is symbolic of the Gnostic mystic. So may I ask what your visionary eyes might see? :)

    • HI DW –
      I see seven red-headed bees, on seven green-gilded leaves, sipping nectar from the sacred center of the Earth – til they are filled up with divine prophecy.

      Do you see this too?

    • Hi wmp!!.
      You’re welcome to butt in anytime!!!
      Glad you see what we see.
      Here’s a secret : I named the piece something having to do with flowers even before Devin asked what I saw. Then, when I looked, the bees stood out to me immediately. Like a rorschach!! How cool is that??
      Something magic must be cooking in my Mandal creation art program. Happy to share the back story with you!!

  3. Hey O and OM,

    Skilled as a Mandala artist, gifted with the written word, and now penning poetry as well! Is there no end to your talents? :)

    Do I see what you see? I do now, and the image comes alive and breathes with life as a consequence :)

    My, how your mind is symbolically creating today OM. Bees, gilded leaves, nectar and prophecy. Indeed, you are flying! So do keep writing those letters and don’t think about landing again until they’re done! Good Luck!

    • My My-
      you do flatter us so!!

      Thank you so very much for your encouraging words. I just need to buckle down and get to it. Perhaps my crack at poetry was to your liking because making art and writing on here has been a much needed escape from the inevitable – boiling down my book and myself (writing it) to a one page letter that has to razzle and dazzle. I think the submissions process is more daunting than the writing of a book itself. Who knew?…. not me. But I am figuring it out as I go.

      Thanks for the many nice and encouraging words. I leave the mastery of the mystical and the poetic on your site however, where it firmly and undoubtedly belongs!!

      o and om
