Mendip, ancient altar, sarsen,
Menhir, dolmen, rollright block,
Prehistoric observatory gears,
Gigantic, juxtaposed geometries,
Eccentric, concentric geologies
These sites, these stones hold, grip and squeeze
The past through the present into the future
With calendar, abstract theory and frustrations,
Calculated avenue extrapolation and druid-ring order,
Leading ritual feet and brain; liberating thinking.
Co-efficient, constellation-myth convergences,
Coincident co-ordinates: histories and mysteries,
Engineered troll-planes and fairy angles,
Obfuscation’s puzzles and care-filled clarifications.
But – hold hard:
Look at the small detail
To balance the universal.
Between the monument rocks.
The dimensions are constant
But the views –
And our perceptions –
Will constantly change
And be altered.
A big thanks to all who have visited, commented and, in any way supported my blogging over he past year.
I wish you all whatever you would wish for yourselves in the nearly-here Year of the Sheep.
