Fear widens the rift
Twixt judgement and empathy
Kinship counts for naught
Shared humanity falters
Where love would open the door
The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at Alderley Edge when the woods, like the mysterious stone in Alan Garner’s books, were golden. It is a place of magic and legend at any season and, wandering its footpaths, you can feel why Garner made the Edge the central ‘character’ in the Weirdstone of Brisingamen and its sequels.
The rift is a part of an old mine working. One part of it is crudely labelled the Devil’s Grave, for if you run three times around it, widdershins, the devil himself will come for you… or so the tale goes.
My thanks, as always, to all those who took part. All the posts inspired by this image are listed below, so please click on the links to read them and leave a comment for the author. Thank you too, to everyone who reblogged the prompt, round up and the individual resposes.
A new prompt will be published later today. I will reblog as many contributions as space and time allows, as they come in… and all of them will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.
Pingbacks do not always come through… and I can miss things too, so 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.
A Reminder and an invitation
As there are usually too many contributions to reblog all of them every week, and so that we can get to know their writers, I would like to invite all writephoto regulars to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my guest! ‘Regulars’ does not mean you have to take part every week… Click here for details
Come and join in!
