Prompt #3 and a Quote

This week's prompt is a word that I picked up from a great novel I read a few years back - A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly. It's historical fiction - which is NOT a genre that I usually enjoy - but I did and I strongly recommend it. The prompt is the word threnody. It means a song of lamentation or a funeral dirge. I wrote it down at the time thinking it would be great to work into artwork and/or a poem. Now I thought I'd share it with you. CREATE.

"I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see." Naturalist John Burroughs
