Artistry Reimagined


By Katrina ThornleyPublished 2 months ago 1 min read

There was an itching in the bones

That couldn’t be satisfied

Within walls-

A gnawing at the edges

That awaited the moments

When modernity fell away

And earth rose up

To catch those ready to leap,

A soft landing,

Welcoming running feet

And echoing voices,

Speaking back to the living spirit

That was caged within

A beating chest

While the mind functioned

Riding the waves

Set forth by the majority-

The spirit found its escape

In the creation of art,

The creation of life

That existed on a different plain-

Hands ached to create

Without blueprint and path

Forging a new map

From the scratch of imagination

Sprouting ideas from palm

Well nurtured

In the soil of a wild world

After the abuse of time

And the destruction of man,

The human spirit revived

With the evolution

Of art in a world

Where it was no longer appreciated.
