Doodling Adrift


Doodle Before/After – photo by Wild Thing

Monotone voice
Droning hypnotically
No window ... stuffy
Mind seeks escape
Inky swirls begin  

Slowly at first
Without pattern
Then with thought
Design takes form
Switching colors 

Simple becomes 
Intricate lines
Repeating themselves
A zig here 
Then a zag 

Drunken lines 
Circles pirouette
Now a concert
Of shape and lines
Alive and full 

Bell rings 
Consciousness back
Chairs scrape 
Art becomes 
Just a bookmark
