Hoary fingers reach
Seeking mirrored yesterdays
An ancient embrace
Passing time holds no meaning
Only the seasons will change
The photo for this week’s prompt was taken one early spring morning in Monyash, Derbyshire.
The village is a truly ancient settlement… there have been people living here for at least five thousand years, largely because of a narrow band of clay running through the limestone that allowed the formation of pools to collect the water needed to sustain life in the high hills. Only the one in the picture now remains, Fere Mere.
It is likely that the inhabitants of this village were involved, four thousand years ago, in building the great stone circle of Arbor Low, just a short distance away.
Thank you to everyone who took part, visited or reblogged the posts or left comments for their authors.
