Miners stayed behind as a vague photo on the wall

“Black as coal they fell to their knees
For no one could hear their pleas
They wheezed and wheezed until no more
For the air they breathed was poor.”

(M. Moise in Ode to the miners)
Genk (B)

The door has remained open, the miners never come back

"And, as the Cock crew, those who stood before
The Tavern shouted -- "Open then the Door!
"You know how little while we have to stay,
"And, once departed, may return no more.""

(Based on a Persian text by Hakim Omar Khayyám)

An open storage

“Funny, how the things you have the hardest time parting with
Are the things you need the least”

(Bob Dylan in Lonesome day blues)

Colourful meeting at a former mining site


“Black as coal they fell to their knees
For no one could hear their pleas
They wheezed and wheezed until no more
For the air they breathed was poor.”

(M. Moise in Ode to the miners)

A broken tower tells pieces mining history

"All things uncomely and broken, all things worn out and old,
The cry of a child by the roadway, the creak of a lumbering cart,
The heavy steps of the ploughman, splashing the wintry mould,
Are wronging your image that blossoms a rose in the deeps of my heart."

(W.B. Yeats in The rose in my heart)
