Photo prompt round-up: Balefire #writephoto


Dancing in the dark

Summoning the flame within

Like calling to like

Elemental magic burns

Autumn leaves and shadows fall


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken, as regular readers may have guessed, when Mister Fox danced for the Hunter’s Moon.

One never-to-be-forgotten year, the Foxes gathered at our annual April workshop and not only danced for us, but even brought the red and white ‘dragons’ within the circle of flame. That we have a video of the occasion is wonderful… as neither Stuart nor I were taking pictures that night.

The ‘dragons’ and the Foxes Photo: Morgana West

Bone-white winter gleams in the moonlight.
Silent shadows hunt in the night….

This is the first year for a while that we have not been there for the event, but the Foxes are still very much a part of our lives.

    Thanks so much for the shoutout of my review. But you scooped me… I was going to reblog that for Tuesday. Oh well, guess that means I’ll have to actually write a post.


  2. Wonderful poem and such amazing photos, Sue. I had assumed that was the occasion of the photo. Great responses by everyone. 🙂
