  9. It was bound to be 'domestic' wasn't it! Either that or pornographic and I'm to innocent to write that sort!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Heh. Heh. Willow, you know I can link damn near everything I've written!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Honestly, this time I thought I was dead in the water. Not a clue was coming until...

    Thanks Willow for pushing me into new realms of adventure.

  18. Willow -- You always surprise me. What a great shot! I always write my submission before reading others so now I'm off to enjoy the creativity you foster in us all. BTW, there was an immediate decision for me, the empty, rumpled bed could only depict one thing--guess I'm a bit maudlin at heart!

  22. wow guys. you're so quick, giving wonderful comments. It's my turn for some lovely critique :)

    If the photo weren't simple yet elegant, I would have written a nasty entry for this challenge :)

    Thanks, Willow.

  24. I missed last week's Magpie and was determined to get one for this weeks. Why this poem inspired thoughts of an affair I don't really know. But hey I had fun with as I do all of Willow's Prompts. I look forward to reading everyones work this week. I am so behind on reading all the blogs and posts its not even funny. Thanks for all of your hard work Willow!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well I have had another go - this one is based on our mornings when holidaying on our bush block - sadly we don't have a lovely room like this one, just a very old caravan - but the mornings are just as spectacular.

    ReplyDelete
