111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression
Day 50: Creativity Prompt #7 Result
On Day 47, I posted the image above with the following prompt:
Create a piece of art (writing, sculpting, painting, music composition, etc.), using the three words above as inspiration.
The hills come alive, not with music
But with familial connections
Who roamed this land before me?
Coal in their lungs and in the ancestral genes,
Off to work they went
Dangerous conditions led to abbreviated lives
And the whistle returned the rest underground
Years pass and seasons change
Yet the stories remain untold
Travel I must to the places they lived
To understand the depth of our connection.
One thought on “Day 50 of the Artistic Spirit Pledge”
They traveled from here.
Married, buried, baptised.
They traveled from
The spire, reaching still,
The hills and trees,
The roads they had known.
They traveled from here
But did not leave.
