Day 50 of the Artistic Spirit Pledge

111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression

Day 50: Creativity Prompt #7 Result

Familial Connections

Familial Connections

On Day 47, I posted the image above with the following prompt:

FAMILY…TRAVEL…CONNECTIONS

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?

I wonder

 

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.

  1. 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.
