Photo prompt round up – Distant #writephoto



Faltering sunlight
Otherworldly shadows cast
A far horizon
Within a circle of stones
I stand beyond time’s compass


A ring of silver
Defining reality
Beneath a pale sky
Evanescent cupola
Covers the sacred chalice


I the emptiness
The vessel and elixir
Offered to the gods
Divine inebriation
The distant becoming home


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in Cumbria, at the ancient stone circle at Castlerigg, one of the most incredible and perfect settings for any sacred site.

Thank you so much to everyone who took part this week. I have shared as many contributions as I could during the week, but the sheer volume of entries we are getting now makes it impossible to reblog all of them!  I schedule reblogs as posts come in, until I run out of space. All the posts are listed below, please click on the links below to read them and leave a comment for the author!

A new prompt will be published later today and I will reblog as many as I can through the week. All contributions will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

If you have written a post for this challenge and it does not appear in the round-up, please leave a link to your post in the comments and I will add it to the list.

Come and join in!
