called again to the gate

at the gate

called again to the gate

the door

the mirrored self

the mirage

the shimmering

silent veil

the mystery

waiting for a sign


skies remained







out of the blue

beyond the gate

the door

the reflection

the mirage

the silent veil

a shimmering voice

an invitation

to dance

the mystery


an empty


singing illusions

of oceans


waiting for a sign

before making

an entrance

into another

shimmering unknown


Painting and poem by clinock.

  1. The light falling on the right part of the orange “torso” gives it body and those wonderful colours! I can’t take my eyes from them, but I love the poem as well. Lovely!

  2. thanks so much Ina…I know my art but am tentative about my poetry…to receive positive comments from you helps me understand I am maybe on the right road…I admire what and how you write…inspires me a lot…

  3. Another inspiring post, John. I’m learning a lot here about process and play. And the juxtaposition between image and poem. I like seeing the colors you choose to compliment your poems…another means of communication….and the wave-like movement in the poem. A feast!

  4. The painting, such vibrant blues and rich oranges. I could easily see this piece sold and admired. The poem is gorgeous, pensive, and relatable. Very nice

  5. A feast I hope was filling and comfortably digestible…thank you Jana…all falls into place when I learn not to interfere too much…

  6. This fellow at the gate seems like an old friend. Still waiting on the threshold and sensing mystery. A lovely poem about anticipation of the unknown – life itself.
