Blind threads- an Ekphrasis

‘ Blind threads’ my artwork exploring one line scribble art and graphic design, also the basis of this Ekphrasis.

No, don’t you try

to unravel

the inhabitant of my skull.

Don’t you try

to untangle

this mess,

this tumult,

this brouhaha I call myself.


I shall always be




like hanging threads.

    Ok read it – need several rereads. But first reading what I get out of your poetic expression is – do not detangle or untangle your twisted mind too much because that is your source of creativity. Polar opposites need to mix and match.
    The sugar/spice/skin element missing but you fully cover that to great pleasurable extent in other poems and philo-recipes of yours 🙂

    P.S.: Wonderful drawing too. I wish I could draw I just doodle senseless.
