Motivational Monday Poem: Ancestral Connections

Myths, folklore, ancestral connections

Embedded in my memory

Energizing my spirit

The paths of those who came before

Walking alongside my own


Ethereal Celtic voices and harps

Drums and flutes of the First Nation

Lungs coated by coal dust

Hands that pulse with the earth’s soul

Your imprints grounded in nature and DNA


Diarmuid and Grainne – rooted in Celtic mythology

Grandma Joan – passing down a sixth sense and Native energy

Ellia and Granny Sue – love of food, family, and Slovak tradition

Their stories motivate my artistic spirit


I accept and embrace the energy

Of those who lived prior

And the ones whose spirits remain

My pencil ready to record the past to inspire the future.
