Shadows 4 Coal Miner

20110803-125029.jpg

A tribute to the miners who lived in the shadow of the mountain, and the shadows of the deep.

The mine is long gone, but not the inscription by this statue;

That mirror world is dark now.

The men laid down their tools,

and took the mantrip to the surface, home

in the quiet,

hear the mountain sigh.
