The Standing Stone

mitchells fold

Stone from Mitchell’s Fold stone circle, Shropshire

She places her palm on the lonely stone

Granite upright, standing in a sea of grass and heather

From within it she feels the heartbeat of the earth

Moving, pulsing, from the ground beneath her feet

Through the rock, cold to the touch

And into her skin

As she draws the ancient natural energy into herself.
