Seven Day Challenge 5: Monks and Violets again.

On my second ever post I made a little flip book. I have had to remove the link due to lack of space. As only a couple of people have looked at that post – thank you for your likes – and that this blog exists to teach me things and that I have spent the day battling with technology to create this page I feel OK about re-posting the images as today’s challenge.

So here are my collages about Monks and Violets.

A Japanese Haiku is a very short story. A small jewel of an isolated thought bubble.

The poets Basho and Ryokan had some stories to tell about violets, too. The itinerant monks who populate these stories were loners. They sought the Divine through isolation.
