The photograph for this week’s prompt was taken in Scotland, at St Andrews in the ruined Abbey, during our road trip last year. I loved the way the light caught the edges of the grave markers displayed in the crypt and thought it lent a surreal and otherwordly look to the place and it reminded me of an old legend…
There is an isle of spiral stone
Held fast with sea-linked chain
Where those who served are laid to rest
Until they come again.
So bright the light they bore in life,
So clear their sight and soul,
That in the faery crypt they sleep
Still incorrupt and whole.
Their place upon the Isle of Glass
Was earned through song and deed
And here they wait in silent rest
Till Albion has need.
Here lies the once and future king
Within the fabled round,
Brought hence by Queens in woven mist
Until the call shall sound.
Walk softly as you tread these halls
Where sleep the brave and best…
For only those who serve the Light
Within its light may rest.
