Victor Vasarely – his part in my Artrising

Blanc / Black
Tic  /  Tac
Plip  /  Plop

Noir / Black

Space – the biggest gap
Life – the hardest trap

Exchange – the first start
Rearrange – the way of being

Victor – today’s weather
Vasarely – halves together

Once you can communicate,
Speak your worth.

Once you can draw,
Add your values.

Once you understand,

Some of the tracks to Belle Isle
Appear like petal falls,
Their gathered pattern
In ever-flux

Laws of wave and particle dance
Create a mind flow distraction
Whilst the Tick Tocks
The Plip Plops and
Life rocks
From each wake to sleep.

Never the parting heralded
Never the arrival stifled.

Heart  /  Soul


A circle of dots appear as animated
but blink, fast enough, and all are still.

A life seems punctuated by events
but live long enough and life becomes nil.

Vasarely would suggest that all is a plastic in motion
that we animate, along with all other energized forms.

A heart beat away.
Co-ordinated impulses set to rhythms
We eat to feed.

What we know we cannot say.
We just grow
To fit some need.

Beyond normal explanation

The day starts. It’s a further less usual day.

The HoBB is closed as there’s a virus about!

But it remains usual as a sharing day and a day for nibbling virtual snippets and offline fish and chips.

As covid 19 is ‘beyond normal explanation’, here is my artistic impression of its purpose in life ….. in ink and pencil with a royal tyrean purple overlay.

But before it, a blossom of peony, now pink, once red, to show that normality grows in the HoBB garden and lives seasonally strong.

Happy new normality.
