The Stones Cry Out


(click to play QT movie – only 82k)

breath calls to breath

fire answers fire

shout melts into cloud

the stones remember

this looping story

of man and his

fire and stone

the stones know better

the stones cry out . . .




The Stones Cry Out was written by Andrew Jones 21.6.05

I was at Orkney’s Ring of Brogar last night and was chatting to the various people there – those beating drums and this guy blowing fire. He let me film him. And i was reminded of the 5000 year history of people calling out to God from this location. The stones saw it all.
