This may not look like a mandala, but it fits because it is meant to be one of twelve elements in a grand zodiac mandala. The picture and accompanying poem are representations of Scorpio. I was born under that sign myself, so I started with it. I have sketches and poetry fragments toward the other eleven signs. I may not live long enough to complete it, but it is an idea that has been brewing in me for thirty years.
