how color brightens a path (photo by Elsa Frausto)
(This beautiful backyard scene, photographed by Elsa,
shows how stunning the use of color can be,
with a simple magical touch, a path is transformed.
Imagine this scene without color,
and the satisfying wonder of the pinks and golds, contrasts
and scattered shapes call us into a different, fanciful world.
I smiled as soon as I saw this photo.
I use color myself, as a natural unconscious expression of feeling,
it seems to draw us all together.
How have you used, seen color used in fascinating ways,
significant, symbolic along the path
and how can your place these colorful stones in your tanka?)
