Thursday photo prompt: Rift #writephoto


This week, Sue gives us Rift to work with.

For visually challenged writers, the image below shows a clearing in an autumnal wood, where what appears to be a large crack runs along the rock floor.

Ragged edges smoothed
By the rift of time,
Trees witness to solitude and loss.
Blood stains the rock,
A pool of longing formed by
Tears bathing sorrow.
The time for sleep has passed.
In gentle moonlight
A single eye opens,
Watchful and guarding.
The Goddess will come,
Lay her hand on his head
And he will be blessed
To rise again
As her companion,
As it was meant to be.
