Enigma #midnighthaiku

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Human enigma
Achieves the impossible
Denies evidence

The valley is flooded. Beneath it two villages are drowned. Modern Man works engineering miracles then sails on his creation, trusting his eyes and self-satisfaction.

Above the valley are sculpted hills, crowned by the works of ancient Man, crafted in stone. Did Man sculpt those hills? “Impossible!” they say, laughing, dismissing the works of ‘cave men’.

  1. I’ve driven past Silbury Hill a few times. The first sighting was a real shock – its incongruity with the landscape made it look eerie.

    • Silbury is a fantastic structure, and one of the largest man-made mounds in Europe. Its smaller cousin at Marlborough a few miles way, right within the college grounds, is even more incongruous 🙂
