  12. My thinking is often non-linear, but I promise, my poem was inspired by this picture.

    Sings: would I lie to you....

  13. This one prompted a different type of story . . for me, at least.

    Great, especially since Lear was the subject of my magpie tale last week.

  16. I saw what most likely will be a different 'take' on your photo.

  17. At first, I was worried that nothing would come, but when I got quiet, the words began to whisper.

  18. I did what I've learned works for me. One opening sentence....then I'm off and running. But the pipes....sewer pipes by the look of them....well...talk about a problem!!

  20. Well, now that I've had my weekly meet-up with the people living in my head I can safely go to sleep.

    Thanks Willow for keeping me on my toes in unknown flight patterns.

  22. Up, and at it again! Thanks Willow, really good prompt.

  23. Elizabeth, I had a similar experience. I was thinking, pipes?! Writing is so great that way. I think nothing is there. But I'm just not ready. When I quiet myself and open up, it's been right there all along.

  24. How's your internal plumbing?

    ReplyDelete
  25. It took a long time for me to come with somethign and think it just too sad.

    ReplyDelete

  35. Thanks, as usual, for an excellent photo. It reminded me of the hundred-year-old house we once lived in, but that's not what I wrote about.

    ReplyDelete
  36. When were you in my basement, photographing my pipes?

    ReplyDelete
  37. I loved what was born from this image. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE it on so many levels. I carried it around with me all day yesterday... I don't think I wanted to let it go in order to write!

  38. Oh my... oh my... this one was FUN! For the first time in decades I wrote a poem! A poem! Me! I'm such not a writer like most here, but I guess the talent pool here inspired me. That and Willows pic. Great shot Willow. Poetry in a flash... Thanks!

  39. This was serendipity, I was already working on a piece that included the line "and I a conduit of worry" -- so when I finished it, I posted here...

  48. I am truly and idiot girl in action, this is my first time doing this and my name seemed to have posted in the area of 5000 times. I need a "How to post a Magpie Tale for Idiots". Sorry about that... Nice site Willow, I had a good time trying to write something a little out of the norm for me.

    ReplyDelete
  49. What a great prompt, Willow! It made me think of old, dark things...sewers and tunnels and what could possibly be hidden inside.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Better late than never - I'm in.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm ready, looking forward to seeing everyone else's now too.

  56. Hey, Willow! I just love these prompts - this 'rusty piping' took me back years - and not in a way you'd think! Gave me a wacky idea indeed for my poem! Keep them coming!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I really thought I was going to have to pass on this Magpie Tale, but I hated to bow out on just my second week. I'm glad I came up with something to post. Still fun!
