The Stone Circle

Far away on the lonely hilltop
deep in the midst of the moor
a place often shrouded by mist
only  deep silence there prevailed

The monolithic stones stand proud
so many things have they seen
watched as blood was spilled
in sacrifice, lust and murder

The chill of this place creeps in
utter desolation is in the very air
a circle built by man for worship
of the darkest kind taking of life

Bare earth surrounds these stones
here nothing grows not even a weed
at night you can hear the banshee
howl to the moon before he hunts

A circle  they say shows continuation
here all it symbolises is  bloody death
the restless souls within know no peace
this circle their prison from here to eternity

    I love standing stone I have been around Ireland & the UK searching out various rings, you know, they didn't feel too haunted, they felt hmmm resigned? Light & Love [when ever you don't know the form just put Verse]

    Eerie, creeping through the ages, transmitting a message known only to few! Captivating and mystifying!
