Day 21 of the Artistic Spirit Pledge: Novel

111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression

Day 21: A Novel Poem

Inspired by one of my characters

Inspired by one of my characters

Art’s healing power

Spirits existing beyond physical form

Family connections that strengthen and stress

Themes that shape my Young Adult novel

 

A young girl who searches for her place in the world

A mother who seeks to protect her children no matter the cost

A young man who must face his responsibilities

Characters that guide the story

 

A blend of fairy tales, mystical elements, and ancestral connections

Formed the book that I loved to write

And one that I hope future generations will treasure

 

**I am an Artistic Spirit! For most of my life I’ve used the creative arts as a source of spiritual exploration and healing, even though I didn’t always do so consciously. Sometimes I was the instrument creating the art and other times I was on the receiving end. The connection between art and spirituality is so significant in my life that it’s infused into everything I do. I love music, theatre, television drama series (daytime and primetime), and creative writing and find fulfillment in artistic expression of various sorts: singing, acting, and jewelry design. Throughout the next 91 days, I’ll delve into how all of the above strengthens my spirit and has saved my life on more than one occasion.**
