small circle of stones

small circle of stones
enclosed by moss-green pasture –
silent, not silent

Each unique stone in the small henge at Drumskilly near Enniskillen could be a gray cumulus cloud come to earth, or a pillar of mud once sculpted by running water, or a gathering of petrified Druids. See the faces? We are the only visitors at this small henge, way off the beaten path. The whole place is quiet and yet the silence is humming. Putting a hand on each stone, I can feel the vibrations of each different voice.
