‘The 100’ #94 – Try This

Try This 1_2

A challenge to all you poets and writers out there:

Use the six found words in the top right corner of the art above to create a poem. Not necessarily in this order.

“save, kite, hole, gate, while, spoke.”

The poem doesn’t have to relate to the image, but kudos to you if it does.

Send in your poems as comments so we can all share.

Here is my humble effort:

Save this broken kite,

this fallen angel,

gate and bind its gaping hole

with inky flesh,

surreal whispers of skin

and bandages of words.”

 So spoke

the icy voices

of the winter winds

while torn shreds

of paper wings,

tangled in ribboned string,

thrashed and pummeled

against cold




mixed media painting and poem by clinock.

‘The 100′ series was initiated by my 100th Post in April 2012. As text and images are the essence of my blog my intention is to present 100 pieces of text based art from historical and contemporary artists and from my own hand. To view the series to date click on ‘The 100’ in my Category Menu.

  1. Red kite

    We stood before the gate and waited,
    non of us spoke while through a hole
    we saw her and her kite. The new girl.
    Her hair was black. She startled, then
    let the red kite go, and you ran forward
    to save it for her from flying off the cliff.
    You took her hand, we others knew
    that you would never let her go
    as long as you would live. The girl
    was new and now a part of us for ever.


  2. So sad spoke the kite to the gate
    I fly free while
    you’re fixed in place.
    Save your pity
    the gate replied
    I protect and Serve.
    The hole smiled
    knowing full well
    he could defeat them both…..
