Standing Stones

Standing stones



said the sea.

Can you hear the ghosts of war on the tide,

carried back and forth

from other times, other centuries.


soaked in sorrow,

like tomb-stones littered on the shingle.

Who will save our souls,

cry the ghosts.


  1. nice symbolism, Teri…too many interpretations…i see an impediment, helplessness, desire for liberation…questions must be answered though…could the answer be provided by the sea?


    1. Thank you for your comments Virgilio, the post relates to a place not far from my house, deserted now, but at one time a place of great hope for the swiss genovese, but they left, and it was taken over by soldiers, gaining notoriety as a holding centre for rebel prisoners during and after the 1798 rebellion. The shocking events that took place during those times seemed to have charged the air with sadness. All I could do was to pray for them. victims and abusers.
