Mandala and Mycenaean haiku: the sea, the circle of heaven, the sun


Mandala and Mycenaean haiku: the sea, the circle of heaven, the sun:

Mandala the circle of heaven Mycenaean haku the sea the circle of heaven the sun

I found this astonishingly beautiful mandala on the Twitter account of my friend, Marie Marshall, who is an accomplished poet. I decided to write my own haiku in Mycenaean Greek, archaic Greek, English and French to complement it. For those of you who cannot read Greek, this is how the Greek sounds, thalassa/kuklos ouranoyo/heilios. Beautiful eh? I am sure Marie will love it! … and so will you! I Know I do.

  1. This mandala is actually by Marie Taylor, resident artist at ‘the zen space’, where I’m the editor. I agree it’s rather beautiful. It has imperfections, which make it perfect, if you see what I mean. 🙂
