111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression

Day 85: Birds of Feather (Prompt #12 result)

The Creativity Prompt on Day 82 was as follows:

Is Your Creativity Soaring?

Is Your Creativity Soaring?

Use the photo above as a starting point for your artistic exploration this weekend. Write a story, paint a picture, create a new song, or go down by the water and sketch. Have fun creating!

{THE IMAGE ABOVE INSPIRED THE POEM BELOW.}

My friends soar by

Riding against the wind

While I stand here and watch

It looks so freeing

I think I’ll stay where I am

 

Why does he linger

When the rest of us fly

Does he expect us to wait

Or give him a peck of encouragement

I think I’ll keep flying

 

By land or by sea

We’ll arrive at our destination

Taking different paths along the way.

 

**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 26 days, I’ll delve into how all of the above strengthens my spirit and has saved my life on more than one occasion.**
