This is part of Sue Vincent‘s photo prompt challenge.

                   ************

Why do they sit and guard at the gates, what are the horrors that they await?

Why do they guard the portal, why do they never sleep what is it they guard why is this their fate.

Why for millenniums have they stood by their posts

Why, …… is it to save us from aliens or ungodly hosts?

 

What are they protecting us from, what fiendish hell are they shutting out

What is it fighting to get in and attack this world and wipe it all out!?

What is the secret they keep , what would happen if they open the portal for us to take a peek.

What is the horrible truth that they keep , are you ready to hear and face the words that I speak.

 

It is not us they are saving, is it not us they protect , 

 NO! It is all the other dimensions and  worlds across the threshold …… they will not let us infect!

It is shocking  and fearful for us to be told

It is us that we are the evil from all other worlds and dimensions they must withhold!! 

Thursday Doors. Thoughts from France

This is my entry for Norm 0.2 ‘s Thursday Doors.

Rules and Pingback here
So today the doors will be French because I am in France. 

The first two are from yesterday in Sarlat, one is a beautiful metal studded door 



and the second is the biggest door I have ever seen!! So big I didn’t manage to get it all in the photo!

The third one we saw today in Brantome, I would say one of the most lovely places we have visited this far. Set by a river with an historic Abbey and park land. Though there were plenty of tourists there it was not busy busy.

The fourth  is to either a shop or workshop, I was not sure which. It was like all the others in that street built into the rock face . I particularly liked the stain glass window above the door, also the way I caught the shadow pattern. I have to be honest I caught the shadow by accident not design. Also in Bramtome.
Another lovely day!

Thoughts from France.A Day Trip.

Yesterday, Wednesday, the heavens opened and the temperature dropped dramatically! Though it was not in any way cold it was wet.

So after a leisurely breakfast we set off on our travels. We visited Salat,Domme, La Roque-Gageau and Beynac

Ducks in the street and a man on the wall in Salat.Salat was a lovely town full of alleys and shops and interesting buildings and statues.
Next we walked the alleys of the old town and investigated the church.

Inside the church we found all the usual, stain glass windows,vaulted ceilings,statues, huge organs and pulpits. The unusual thing we did find was a large piece of wood with a hammer attached. People could pay ,€1, €2 or €3 to hammer in a golden nail for favours. The money was put towards the upkeep of the church.

The wooden post with nails. 

 After Salat we made our way to Domme which was lovely though the roads in the wet were a little scary!

Domme

Then after a tour around Domme we set off for La Roque-Gageau . A beautiful place to visit.

Every year I get so sad when I see the sunflowers, past their best, brown and bent looking. There they stand looking dejected as if they know the machines are coming to cull them for their seeds Every year I repeat the first lines of a poem I wrote the first time I saw them.


“I think  that I  have  never  seen a sadder  scene   than  golden  sunflowers, die  and  turned  to green.”

I have to dash now as Hubby is itching to go out!
