  1. Well, I just put mine in after willow's. I hope you enjoy! It's called Liquid Love No 3, a creative title. I have no idea what Acqua di Parma means, so I just had to use my creativity!

  2. This was my first attempt at Haiku. I think I will post a short story tomorrow as well. If I messed up this Haiku please someone tell me!!!

  3. Thank you Willow! Perfect... exactly what I was looking for. Mine will be up as soon as I can get the words to paper. Have been milling something around for days, between meetings and daily life, trying to find the moments to record the thoughts.

  10. Long time listener, first time caller... Over the past couple of months I've really enjoyed reading the fantastic work these writing prompts have inspired. So I thought it was time to have a go myself. Thanks for the great prompt!

  11. This is a scent of the 20s and 30s, light and elegant. I have tried to match my piece to the fragrance.The scent is unisex, hence the male protagonist.

  16. I thought I was done with love poems till I fall in love again. That was a thought gone past because this weeks picture only made me think of love or new love. Great picture! :)

  17. Hello All, Wonderful day for a Magpie Tale, no?

    I must say, I am so impressed, with the calibre of wildly incredible, delicious and magnificent writings I have found here at Magpie. Thank you Willow.

    As I said yesterday, I think it was yesterday, Magpie Tales and One Stop Poetry are the best collection of writers anywhere on the net and I am humbled by each and every one of you.

    Thank you will never be enough though I assure you I am beyond grateful.

    Have a great week everyone.

    Love and Light,

    Sender

    THANKS AGAIN WILLOW!

  19. I'm getting awfully careless, I forgot to add myself to Mr. Linky, but I remembered....thanks, see you after the 1st.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh this photo had me stumped for a while Willow but I'm in!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Back from computer problems, I submit mine. Funny how our moods reflect what we write, isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I always enjoy your ethnic, "foreign" prompts. Grazie tante!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have left an unpleasing smell at No.45 in your list. And No.46, by accident. Silly Ada!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow. My lust for all things Italian continues to grow. Thank you and I hate you and watch while I grab your face and kiss you on the lips and then turn my back and gesture wildly, stomping all the way....

    Our Blood Speaks.

  25. I despair of Blogger links - maybe one of them will work?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ooh, I colect perfume bottles, precisely for this classic vintage allure of times gone by and romances ignited. Looking forward to where this takes me...

    ReplyDelete
  27. My first time joining in - fun prompt!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm in! Blogger is being a pain tonight and will not let me add a picture, so for now mine is a pictureless post. :-(

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hope you all enjoy the next installment of 'Jack's Gremlins'.

    This was just the transition I was looking for. Thanks Willow.

    ReplyDelete
  30. It is sweet (!) irony that this beautiful image perfectly suited a poem I wrote in August as response to a prompt at another blog. Nice to have it tested by more readers at the perfume counter. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I must be persona non grata, as NONE of my links work at all - not even the one in the comments column! Boo Hoo!

    ReplyDelete
  32. No worries, Jinksy, I fixed your link! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Another interesting photo prompt! Nice job! Here's
    My Magpie.

  39. I'm in.. with a piece about entering into the most holy place.. a bit different, but an exciting journey

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm in with whatcha might call 'aromatic' writing
    ...does that mean it smells? --grin!

    Hey, I DO need to know if my haiku are really haiku--or, rather, what are haiku rules?
    Seriously.
    Thanks! For EVERYTHING........

    ReplyDelete
  41. Another stimulating prompt. Thanks, Willow.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Dear Magpies: How could this image not convey sexy or funny sexy? Anyone have a fan? I am getting too many hot flashes! Italian men and Italian cologne; are you kidding me? Kick-starting the old romantic in me. Well trying to!

  43. Hi, mine's up. Just a simple story this week.

    To steveroni, there are rules to haiku which are too involved to explain even if I understood them. Generally they are 3 lines composed of 17 syllables 5-7-5. This is simplified as they are really moras which are different than syllables. A little Googling will get you a more accurate description.

  44. OOH, that was fun! I took a real event from my gaudy 80's adolescence and transported it back in time to the early 60's... magic!

    ReplyDelete
  45. This little poem was the first thing that happened when I saw the bottle, I am still sneezing.....ha ha ha

    ReplyDelete
  46. It's not quite a villanelle;
    I just hope it doesn't smell.

    ReplyDelete
  47. This was my first ever Magpie Tales, and it was very interesting. I think I'll be doing this very often and I'm glad I found this blog :]

    ReplyDelete
  48. I enjoyed this week's picture prompt. Sniffed out a good one there, Willow!

    ReplyDelete

  52. As usual, i'm a little late with my post. But, it was fun to do it! Anyway, hope u enjoy it!

    ReplyDelete
  53. After a false start (where the main character wandered off with the plot line and ended up givig me a story with no perfume bottle in it at all), I managed to come up with another quick one for the pot. Phew...

    ReplyDelete
  54. I thought i would skip this time due to scarcity of time, but your picture just didn't let me... I love to be a part of this blog
