Photo prompt round-up: Still #writephoto

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.

A new prompt will be published later today. As always, 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 next Thursday.

All the posts are listed below, so please click on the links below to read them and leave a comment for the author!

Pingbacks do not always come through… 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.

An invitation to writephoto writers…

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 writers to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my guest! Click here for details.

Come and join in!

Thank you to all Contributors!

    How beautifully you’ve captured the scene


  4. I enjoyed the poem and the background information as well. It’s hard to conceive of walking on the same ground and seeing the same sights as someone five thousand years ago.
