‘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.
