Roots drink deep of earth
Minds open to welcome light
Heart keeps its secrets
The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at the great stone circle of Avebury. This stand of trees is well known to those who visit the stones and seems to offer a portal through which dreamers may pass.
I have written much of the circle, but little of the trees… mere youngsters beside the stones that have stood there for thousands of years. This little copse grows on the earthen bank of the henge, standing guard over the eastern entrance to the stones.
Their roots, exposed by weather and the erosion of many feet, form an intricate lacework across the end of the henge…. and always remind me of my great-grandmother’s antimacassars, pritecting what lies beneath.

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.
Many people are having problems with pingbacks not coming 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.
