The Keepers

Think of these as keepers,
Closed ranks
On hidden secrets
Form connotations of mystic meaning
Threaded through time.
The world without
Dark mystery within
Waiting;
Questions surround;
Clear purpose inside.
What covert union
Maintains the recumbent secret
Unscripted in ancient rocks
From Welsh Pressili hills?
Behemothic bluestone
Hewn a hundred miles away
With Neolithic tools-
Rome wasn’t built in a day
Or Pyramids by the Nile;
Which age considered primitive?
The stones won’t enlighten our
Naivety
Or edify the secret;
Think of these as keepers.
