Shaman (renovation art 3)



Shape shifter,

Sometimes winged,

Sometimes four legged.

Woman, man, fish, amoeba,

Bone and card reader,

Weaver of dreams,

Midwife and mortician,

Magician and Fool.


Beyond right and wrong,

Always and forever

He is deeply here

At the pulsing center

Of my life,

And I dance his mystery

Into drumming kaleidoscopes

Of wonder.


Art and Poem by Clinock.

Sculpture: Shaman, by Clinock. H. 13″ x W. 5″ x D. 5″. Fired and stained clay.


Autumn Resurrection

Resurrectionsometimes, even

in the season

of dying and farewells

the broken,

the rusted,

the rejected

are touched by magic,


garlanded in lights

and flowers,


and honoured

as fallen leaves

and a tenuous sun

ride summer memories

through October streets.

Another Full Moon.

full_moon_dreamsFull moon rising,

your red dress ripped,

my arms and legs torn

by brambles,

cyphers of blood

writing our story.


Deep orange

flooding through veins.

Volcanic passage


across forests

in which we lay down.



our bodies gone,

lost to the full moon,

unable to breath,


to hold on to us.


Deep power

pouring from night.

The stars are singing

through our reaching flesh

as we touch

the trembling sky.


We are lost

with the lost moths,

battering their wings

against the burning


of eternal light.

Eggs of Isis

Eggs of Isis 4



burning desire

fecund magic flames

igniting life’s passion

as over and over

 she conjures




we are

her eggs

her fruitful

full ripe bodies

 fertile  gardens of longing

surfaces penetrating sighing depths

parting hidden veils of loving

 exploring moist heat

soft caverns of fire





 opening more

 inviting us to dance

this waltz of birth and death and love

again and again and again

in blood and tears

and laughter

our shells




rounded arcs

of light


acrylic mixed media painting and poem by clinock.


Broken. 18" x 22". graphite, conte & charcoal on paper. (Dwg #28)

broken in the rain,

repair is complicated

and plans misplaced.


all parts are fallen,

sanguine and separated,

vulnerable to rust.


solitary fragments

wait for the miracle

of reattachment.


magic craves time,

sacrifice and surrender

to reanimate

this static wreckage

that still pulsates with dreaming,

and magic must be fed.

‘The 100’ #74 – The Waiting Room Drawings.4.

Waiting Room 4. 12" x 10". Mixed Media. (Mix Med #28).


in the waiting room

you might observe

that we lack what might be termed

Modern Conveniences

our dimension is

carved from space and decorated with

intimate meanderings

of images and breath

this is enough to satisfy our present needs

and as we wait

we pass the time

by thinking, imagining, postulating,

slowly opening

each and every door

to each and every possibility of thought

but only time

will tell

“Given the existence as uttered forth in the public works of Puncher and Wattmann of a personal God quaquaquaqua with white beard quaquaquaqua outside time without extension who from the heights of divine apathia divine athambia divine aphasia loves us dearly with some exceptions for reasons unknown but time will tell……………………………”
