Photo and Haiku © Steve Lakey 2015.
At least four generations of my family, including myself, have worked at local collieries. Now, in the UK, coal mines have all but disappeared. This photo was taken at Pleasley Colliery, Derbyshire – one of the pits that my Dad had worked at many years earlier. By the time of this picture, it had been closed for many years, and was left in a derelict state.
The photo and poem were prompted by Word Snap Weekly, 11th January 2015, hosted by Amanda Lakey at UniqueArtChic.com.

Enjoyed your combination of image and family history.
Thanks for commenting, Sally. Amanda is having problems with her blog currently not being on the Reader! If you’d like to visit at uniqueartchic.com, I’m sure she’d appreciate it. 🙂
Oh, I will.
