In amongst a swell of anxiety, unease and overwhelm, haloes of hope are starting to emerge.
At the close of April I was fortunate enough to join a small handful of other folks in my natural habitat – an idea generation workshop for a collaboration between calmzone and 64millionartists. Each week, throughout the year, 64millionartists send out a creative prompt encouraging the artist within us all as a form of expression and catalyst for change. For each week in May, including Mental Health Awareness Week, members of the CALM arts community have set the creative challenges!
Last week’s prompt was Silver Linings.
Words I hold close when I have enough energy to fight the dark clouds
nestled in the clouds
she catches a glimpse�
a delicate light�
a glistening sign
did she imagine�
this halo of hope�
break it’s way through�
the dark of the storm
she holds her breath�
she steadies her gaze�
her silver lining�
appears yet again
Sometimes they are particularly hard to unearth but I always hold hope of discovering them if I can dig a bit deeper, I hope you find some too
shot last year, felt right with these words
