  2. The reflection in the window made me feels reflective. I know I get so into my own life, I forget about the whole world that is going on so near.

  5. I love it when an image arrives here and I have to drop everything and write. This got me back here after several weeks absense.

  6. WIllow . . I'd love to know more about the picture. Very mysterious and moody. Have you any details?

    ReplyDelete
  7. You supply the photo and we supply the mood and insight. LOVE IT.

    This photo could go in so many directions, but mine is taking a creepy turn. How can one avoid taking that obvious path....well...it's obvious to me, which says more about me than the photo. lol

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yeah, I thought this photo would prompt lots of different directions! Can't wait to read!

  10. Willow, that's an awesome image. I'm gonna try to rework something I've got in the pipe to fit this (might not be successful, but I'm gonna try!).

    In the meantime, enjoy an oldie. ;)

  17. I wonder whether Mr Linky will send you HERE this week?

    ReplyDelete
  18. An inspirational photo; for once inspiring me to wax lyrical rather than replying tongue-in-cheek.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Loved your photo Willow, I look forward each week to see what you have come up with next.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Finally caught up with the rest of you. All my missing entries are posted. New GrandBaby born 09/20/10 so had time to write but no time to post.
    Really miss doing this weekly.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Mine is a little long this week but I hope a few of you will check it out and tell me what you think. It is a mini-short story.

    ReplyDelete
  22. OK, mines up. Probably a strange interpretation of the photo.

    ReplyDelete
  23. A puzzling and interesting photo. Thanks, Willow, for providing this forum for us.

    ReplyDelete
  24. This is the first time I've posted anything. I saw a post on one of my regular reads and followed it back here. What a wonderful idea! Thank you so much for putting this together, Willow, and to everyone else for the plethora of writing to read.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thank you Willow, this one created a bit of a challenge for me. Hopefully everyone will enjoy.

    ReplyDelete
  26. For those who hoped more from my Magpie 29 (on the cottage) this is the next installment.

    All your comments are much appreciated.

    Thanks once again for the prompt Willow :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I am back and so thankful for Magpie Tales. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Brought back a past experience for me this week, Willow, partly based on a true story.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thanks Willow, loved this photo, thanks for taking such great pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Dear Magpies: I really had a creepy feeling about this one but that's just me! So you get a creepy poem! (not THAT creepy! I'm getting creepier...aren't I? Don't answer that...please!). :O)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Great reading last week. I look forward to more of the same this week. Thanks Willow! Be Inspired Today! Love and Light, Sender

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm slow....took me a while to figure out what the image was. Life's like that for some of us, I guess!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I look forward every week for your prompt. I love the diversity of perspectives from the writers.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Rick, the beauty of a photo is the range of things people see in it. It can be whatever you see!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Look forward to reading everyone's take on this one...thank you Willow for another great prompt...and so loved your beautiful poem! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm joining you for the first time this week after lurking about wondering what Magpie Tales were.

    Thanks for hosting this lovely spot!

    I'll read and comment as my slow-sial up internet permits.

  37. Copying a page from Jeffscape's book -- that doesn't count as plagiarism, does it? ;-) -- I'm in with an oldie too.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have been on hiatus this summer, but I'm happy to be back!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Discovered this on Lydia's blog. Thanks for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  40. What can I say but - on reflection - this is another great choice!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I went with my first reaction but found it challenging to put it in words. Thank you for the strenuous workout.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have posted mine on my story blog. Please don't be freaked out by the content warning....my magpie is G rated!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Such a beautiful photo Willow. Thanks again for such wonderful inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Drew a blank this week until I read some of the excellent posts. Then it began to make sense to me. Thanks for an interesting exercise.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Willow, I have been watching too much BBC productions. Lol Came up with this after doing some research into my genealogy. Loved it.

  46. Late to the gathering again, but I've stayed away in order to keep my mind centered on creation. The photo threw me for a bit of a loop, not necessarily taking me where I thought the journey would lead. But hey, that's like life. A different path taken.

    Thanks Willow.

    ReplyDelete
  47. This is an awesome photo...it made me think and write about mortality.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Such a gorgeous photo: luminous, mysterious, yet calm...
    At last I can go read everyone else's!

    ReplyDelete
  49. "better late than never," my mama always said!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oops, I typed "Haufrau" into Mr. Linky. Darn. Anyway, I'm glad to be back at doing Magpies after an extended absence!

    ReplyDelete
  56. No worries, Hausfrau, I fixed it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hi Willow

    Have you thought about doing a mini pic mid week? I personally would enjoy doing this more than once a week....

    ReplyDelete
  58. Seemed to have been a little carried away, finding three poems of mine to submit for this one.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Kym, feel free to post more than one piece for each photo prompt, if you'd like do do more!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I enjoy interesting writing. I read a few poems that I very much enjoyed, inspired by pictures from this site. I find the idea of writing anything at all about some random picture somehow exciting. I've submitted my first. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Tarnation, forgot deadline was Tuesday. Oh well I'll finish my story anyway sometime. But will definitely do this next one in time!
