  1. I so love “creature, cloud and stone.”

  2. Lovely landscape!! Volcanic areas are always interesting to me, maybe because I live in a very volcanic area!!!

  3. I would imagine that in warm weather the shadow might be blissful rather than dreadful 🙂 great use of all those words.

  4. Indeed, it does, doesn’t it? Well penned.

  5. Those dark shadows are sure to be home for creatures best left alone.

  6. Is there a typo in ‘praying’?…

    • magicalmysticalteacher

      Nope. “Praying,” not “preying,” was the prompt word.

  7. Nice pic goes well with the poem but, without light there can be no shadows..

  8. That would leave you full of dread…can we refresh with a cup of tea and a pastry 😉

    • magicalmysticalteacher

      I haven’t quite gotten to the pastry yet, have I? 😉

      Thank you. I shall take my time in making the proper selection, and then nibbling delicately rather than diving in!

  15. When dark and dreadful shadows kiss it’s time to get out of Dodge!
