Posts Tagged ‘Labyrinth’

This week I have been attempting to create a piece of artwork from the labyrinth story I shared a couple of weeks ago.

The invitation to place what I had written on a local website, displaying a ‘Collective Collaboration in the Creative Arts’, has been great fun. Mixing paper and ink, with colour and contrast, stirs up something deep within. I love, love, love it.

Many would not appreciate what I appear to have created, it’s classed as ‘Contemporary Art’, a mixed media display of words and texture, the image telling as much about the story as the text.

Where on earth will I put it? It’s so unlike the images I have dotted around my home. They are traditional, neat cottage garden types, surrounded with traditional furnishings and inherited family collectables.

What I can say though, is that it has been incredibly satisfying to my inner creative being, so wherever it ends up will be alright with me.

A writing group prompt. Write something of your choice using the word ‘Labyrinth’, as a prompt.

Sometimes I wonder what on earth is going on inside my head……..

Our writing groups homework, was to come up with something using the word ‘Labyrinth’ as a prompt. Firstly I had to start by taking a trip back to my school days and look the word up in a dictionary. Then a search of the internet opened up a mass of more mind-boggling information. The result was the following, and while I can’t say I fully understand its depths, I have developed an affection for it, in a quirky sort of way.

The Labyrinth

There is only one way in and one way out. You either get me or you don’t.

 My mind, my thoughts, my very being is structured in such a way that you puzzle over who I am, foolishly attempting to unravel and recreate me to your own design.

 I am not a maze with obscure pathways, but an elaborate structure of embryonic design. A woman forged in a womb, born into the mythical land of ‘The Happy Ever After’, that lasted until matrimonial control was blown apart, leaving a jumble of confusion and pain.

 Weaving the past into the present, wisdom can predict untold events and I can see into the future, both yours and mine. I am a tangle of emotions, yet like the spider, I can spin a web and catch you at your own games.

 There is a single thoroughfare to find my core, to discover what’s going on in my heart. Walk that journey carefully, listen for the beat of my heart, draw in the warmth of my body, nest in my intimate places. But listen to those unspoken voices and speak kindly, while residing in trusts secret sanctuary.

 You either get me or you don’t. There is only one way in and one way out.

……………As I said.  ‘Sometimes I wonder what on earth is going on inside my head’.
