Artwork by Bonnie of Original Art Studio


lights hung high like
nervous bystanders
shape of the room
confused
the whitewashed
plaster board
finds it's hinges
and swings
in
where people
stand hands sunk
into pockets
staring at the
vortex
on the wall
clandestine hypnotists
hiding
in the pigments


Offered as part of Friday Poetically hosted by Brian Miller over at One Stop Poetry

Like C Rose I was swept away by those last six words! Fabulous interpretation of the image.
