5 photos – 5 days challenge GRANITE HEART

I have been kindly nominated by Dorne from https://dorneawhale.wordpress.com  to take part in the 5-Photos – 5 – Days Challenge.

The rules are as follows:

‘Post a photo each day for five consecutive days, and tell a story about each photo.  The story can be truth or fiction, poetry or prose.  Each day one must also nominate a fellow blogger to participate in the challenge.’



Is this nature’s greeting to us all?

Chiselled by wind and rain into a perfect granite heart? Whilst dry its form lays invisible, latent even, then soon the tempest rages across the islands, the darkness presses to the ground. Torrents of rain water streams down the rocks, filling the small rock pools and crevices alike. As the deluge continues thunder cracks in the sky and its bellows reverberate ferociously around the stone caverns.

Dawn glistens over the sea, peace restored and the rowan trees drip with refreshing delight as the sun scorches the ground dry. Warm to the touch the granite hums with life, as if to say, ‘Look, this is what I feel. This. Look. My Heart. My Love’.


Many thanks to Dorne for suggesting me for this challenge. I would like to nominate Jacqui Murray at https://worddreams.wordpress.com if she would like to carry on this challenge.  I hope she enjoys it as much as I am and look forward to seeing her photographs / writing posts!

Thank you for visiting.

    Isn’t it wonderful how nature can hide secrets away, then suddenly spring them on us? Too often we just get so bogged down and focused on living, that we cannot see the beauty around us. Your posts constantly remind me that I should keep both my eyes and my heart open to the wonders of this world.

    1. Thank you so much Peter for your warm compliment, makes me blush. I do hope to touch people with my posts but I’m never quite sure. Beauty and art is all around and often in the least expected places or moments.

    I just want to lie down there on these sun warmed granite rocks.
    By this remarkable “Heart rock pool”.
    Spread my hands on the rocks and feels it’s life and energy fill me.

    Thanks for this both dramatic and loving posting.

    I think you deserve to be nominted for this – and it’s a great start. Nature can always surprise you with what it can come up with, especially where you least expect it.

    Can’t wait for what’s to come over the next four days. Good luck.
