Visitors stare

Passing unaware

Of the long, slow heartbeat

The ghost of time remembers

Crystalline veins communicate

The coruscation of inner earth

The flickering flames of celebration

Honouring the origins of the stars

Reflecting ordered constellations

The ordering of the seasons

Past, present and future meld

In a time beyond time

Within hearts of stone

Wordless voices

World watchers



Double etheree for Colleen’s poetry challenge

    I’m watching The Children of The Stones, on Youtube, a kids series which I watched in the ’70s. I have read and watched so much information about stone circles and megalithic structures since I started watching it. xxx

  5. The timelessness of stones – it’s hard to imagine what remains behind after we tread so lightly and briefly through this little world.


  6. Went straight to the heart ❤
