Stonehenge by the Sea

Stonehenge by sea

Rocks protrude, waves crash,
Mist embraces the shore.
What giant moved these rocks here,
To fight the tide and battle time?

This enchanted place calls to me,
Like Stonehenge by the Sea,
A crossroads between the past and future,
Nothing settled, always changing.

Even the sky changes in a heartbeat,
Water battling earth, air carrying their cries:
Elemental soundings, missing only fire.
Magic enfolds, perhaps the fire is in me.

  1. It is like Stonehenge by the sea! Very dark and moody in an artistic way, and your poem matches that mood, almost reads like the start of a novel, very good! 🙂

    There was a wooden henge actually called Seahenge near where I live. A lot of experts are convinced it has the same purpose that stone henge had, but others think that’s laughable and believe it is a set of stones designed to take the weight of another large stone or wooden area for grinding corn or wheat. It’s possible it is as it’s quite small, nothing like the size of Stonehenge https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=seahenge&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=p8XTU8OXG4qp7Aap-IHoBw&ved=0CCsQsAQ&biw=1360&bih=667 It will probably always be a bit of a mystery! I think your picture here looks a more naturally authentic Seahenge! 🙂
