The Mystery of the Stones

February 21, 2011
More by this author
Shadows cast their shimmering glow,
upon the civilization that had once been.
They dwelled beneath the rolling clouds,
leaving their culture behind in a ruin.
Abandoned by man, ages ago,
standing proud, becoming one with nature.
As mysterious as the endless sky,
where they came from, no one will know.
The civilization that once had been,
and the mystery of the stones.

   Nice free verse.  It fits the style of Stonehenge as well as the painting.

 This made me think of my favorite stories from the Outlander series.  Good interpretation of the painting!

I love this poem!  I gave it 5 STARS. I googled the painting and I thought it really put the painting into words. Great job!
