Thursday photo prompt: Crown #writephoto

Every Thursday, Sue Vincent posts one of her photographs and offers up the challenge of writing something using it for inspiration.


For visually challenged writers, the
image shows a well trodden pathway through a field of mown wheat. The path leads up a hill to a green mound crowned with jagged standing stones.

It was a log trek, but they did it,
This one night without fail.
Thousands of steps for hundreds of feet,
They wore a path on their pilgrimage,
The only evidence of their existence.
The rewards were many,
But they were exposed without cover.
Night watchers circled,
Eyes like beacons in the dark sky,
Homing in on the weak.
Still they plodded onward,
Their goal a distant sight,
But determination and grit
Kept them going.
None gave in,
At the end of their travels
They would find Sanctuary
And peace for their dedication.
Topping the crown of the hill
All was revealed in its glory.
The Sacred Stones welcomed them,
Raising their spirits to the heavens,
And in doing so,
Left their bodies in the wheat field,
Husks to be lost on the harvest wind
Releasing the seeds for next year’s generation
And the cycle would begin again.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
