What may lie beyond
Veiled beyond this ‘vale of tears’
Tears will not reveal
Joy and peace lead gently on
Stepping lightly into Light
The photo for this week’s prompt was taken on Stanton Moor at Imbolc, when we visited the Nine Ladies stone circle. Close by is the Cork Stone, the Andle Stone and, a few minutes farther on, the enigmatic Doll Tor.
The whole area is part of an ancient landscape, comprisng settlements, burial fields and ritual sites that would have served the prehistoric community. It is a place full of magic… whether you see it in the long, human story, the beauty of the landscape or the touch of the sacred in their beliefs. For myself, I do not see them as separate.
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!
Please leave your comments for the contributors on their blogs.
And one from me
