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!
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!!!
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.
Beuatiful perspective of this classic scent!
oh mama mia...great image to work with! Thanks Willow!
Interesting that this was photographed at the same angle as the hourglass. Always look forward to the Mags.
Musky, moldy, dark, sexy scents are my favorites!!!
I looked at the photo and had no idea....then it came the moment I stopped worrying about it.
I'm very scent-driven, this is a terrific prompt!
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!
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.
Thanks for the photo willow, really enjoyed this, great fun!
Hi Willow, I am nice and early this week, thanks for the image.
Apologies, Willow, again my first entry doesnt link, but number 29 does, apologies!!
Thanks again , Willow, for another great opportunity!!
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! :)
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,SenderTHANKS AGAIN WILLOW!
Took me a bit of time to find one word!
I'm getting awfully careless, I forgot to add myself to Mr. Linky, but I remembered....thanks, see you after the 1st.
Oh this photo had me stumped for a while Willow but I'm in!
Back from computer problems, I submit mine. Funny how our moods reflect what we write, isn't it?
I always enjoy your ethnic, "foreign" prompts. Grazie tante!
I have left an unpleasing smell at No.45 in your list. And No.46, by accident. Silly Ada!
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.
I despair of Blogger links - maybe one of them will work?
Perhaps this one HERE ?
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...
My first time joining in - fun prompt!
Pricey stuff, Willow! Rick
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. :-(
Hope you all enjoy the next installment of 'Jack's Gremlins'. This was just the transition I was looking for. Thanks Willow.
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. :)
I must be persona non grata, as NONE of my links work at all - not even the one in the comments column! Boo Hoo!
No worries, Jinksy, I fixed your link! :)
Another interesting photo prompt! Nice job! Here'sMy Magpie.
I enjoyed writing the Magpie Tale this prompt inspired...thanks, willow!
I couldn't help myself...i had to double dip again...:-) Thank you for a wonderful prompt Willow! :-)
Finished! And earlier than normal.
Makes me remember things I cherish...
back to make sure you dont sleep good tonight...smiles.
I'm in.. with a piece about entering into the most holy place.. a bit different, but an exciting journey
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........
Another stimulating prompt. Thanks, Willow.
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!
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.
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!
This little poem was the first thing that happened when I saw the bottle, I am still sneezing.....ha ha ha
It's not quite a villanelle;I just hope it doesn't smell.
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 :]
I enjoyed this week's picture prompt. Sniffed out a good one there, Willow!
I managed to get something done this week :) Thanks for the prompt and the memories.
Oops is there any way to remove/edit my link
Fixed it for you, Jon! :)
hi there, this is the first time I post a magpie tale and I'm nervous!! The picture inspired my romantic vein... I hope you like it ;)www.castazero.blogspot.com
As usual, i'm a little late with my post. But, it was fun to do it! Anyway, hope u enjoy it!
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...
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
I'm here but blogger drives me crazy sometimes.QMM
Hi All!! It's never too late as long as it's before 8AM EDT.. isn't it?! :) Loved playing this Magpie!! It was a real challenge!Now to read..... sooooooooo many!! :)
Lots of excellent writing this week my friends. Thank you all for making Magpie Tales so much fun!
