Photo prompt round-up: Tokens #writephoto

Gestures of respect

Tokens left in memory

Gratitude displayed

Anonymous offerings

Minds and hearts freed by magic


The photo for this week’s prompt was a strange choice. I knew, when I stumbled across it, that the photograph had been taken during a trip to Glastonbury some years ago. I knew that I recognised the shot… but it was not until after the prompt went live that I suddenly remembered exactly what it had captured or where.

The feather, the stones, the flowers, leaves and berries… all are small, organic offerings left with respect at the burial place of Dion Fortune, one of the great ladies of the esoteric world.

Her books and her work have probably brought more people to the study of the mystical Qabalah and to the realisation of the magic in every atom of Creation than any other writer of her era.  You can read more about that visit here.


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!

    It is an intriguing photo. Thanks for the mention

    Beautiful verse very apt as well when you explain where the photo was taken. The explanation makes me sadder that I did not make myself join in. I just couldn’t find words for the prompt. 💜

    Hello Sue
    I guess my write-up got missed. Can’t seem to find it here. A slip, perhaps, I hope?


  6. Jules says:

    I always find it interesting when someone changes their given name. Dion Fortune – looked her up.
    She sounds like a very interesting lady. I enjoyed your verse and the photo of the little memorial that honors her memory.

    This week Sue Vincent challenged us with “Tokens”. A lot of interesting perspectives came out with that single word. Enjoy!
