Every book

All those half written, half finished, half-remembered
tales, myths, superstitions
every unedited, mistyped version
still cannot tell of those long ago
who placed stones in lines and rings
who left solitary huge monoliths scattered
who carved ditches and lines
over landscapes which had different meanings then.

All is lost to time

  1. It’s maddening, those standing stones which have survived time and yet are lost to time. I don’t think landscape phrenology is the key, we have to find the inside. An armchair tourist, I would so love to walk Carnac and Callanish. My father raised huge stones on his property which he called Columcille, and those stones bear a great pregnancy. He lives in my recollection of them, thriving in time forever lost.
