Haiku My Heart: Castles







stones of castle walls
whisper stories of boastful
knights, fierce battles lost

Causes one to ponder the history that might have happened. Wishing the castle could share its tales! Well done! Cathy

When castles crumble,
where do knights and ladies dance—
in the dusty moat?

thank you for the link... some awesome history settled between the cracks... at first glance i imaged it looked of ghosts and men just as you spoke... what is property without love and sons...

Meri,
What a beautiful photograph of a massive stone edifice that played home to some, fortress to others and prison to not a few I am certain. I am sure it does have stories to tell and I bet that you have wonderful stories from your visit there.
xo,
Noelle

Oh cool! We just don't have enough castles here in the USA. Big buildings, yes, but not castles. Did you take the drive and see them up close and personal? Awesome. Would love to spend the night.

Peace
