‘The 100’ #73 – The Waiting Room Drawings.3.

Fragmented / Enchanted

The Waiting Room Drawings #3 – mixed media – by clinock.   April 17. 2013.

Fragmented / Enchanted by clinock.

Even as the center holds

(built by loving hands,

it’s architecture strong)

Various preconceptions

of mirrored identity –

(Sensible face,

Pedestrian limbs,

Imagined organs),

fragment and

peel away

shedding more than was known.


Enchanted by this fragmentation

waiting becomes me.

The door is open

yet I choose to linger

in this sweet and bitter place

where honeyed magics

pass through air,

pollinating thought

and flesh

and dreams

fragmenting towers with lightning.


There is no pain in this re-formation,

this cell-by-cell re-construction,

only a patient bliss,

a core of Buddha love,

an attitude of slow turning

across the wavering tiles,

under the melting clock

where I watch through your eyes

the slow dissolve

of this room

where I wait.


‘The 100′ series was initiated by my 100th Post in April 2012. As text and images are the essence of my blog I will post 100 pieces of textual 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.
