Earth-song in the heart
Stone that drinks from iron skies
Heather in the blood
Ageless and timeless siren
Calling the wanderer home
The photo for this week’s prompt was taken one wintry Friday in heaven… alone on the moors above Ilkley after an absence that had lasted far too long. It was supposed to be a few minutes wander before continuing my journey…but that little stretch of moor sings to my soul in ways no other place does… and, caught up in the joy of wandering the hills alone, I walked for miles and hours.
I have been back many times since that morning. The Silent Eye has run two workshops on the moors, we have walked there with a friend, seeking the fairy mine and wandered together, finding wonder every time. I could never tire of this place and, although my horizons and affections have widened to take in other moors and the many beautiful and ancient places that we have visited, Ilkley Moor is, and will remain, dear to my heart.
It always calls me home.
