Mag 37

After two Magpies, I'm thoroughly hooked. 
I don't want them once a week. 
I want them once every ten minutes.

  5. Mag is early this week? :-o Gosh, I wasn't ready.. off to think!


    Willow, I've been a regular at Magpie since 2 months now... Any chance you making it twice a week? The site is such an inspiration for me.. especially for my haikus and Photoshop work! Thanks as always :)

    ReplyDelete

  8. It's cold enough this morning to make me wish I'd stayed in bed, so the prompt is paricularly apt! And for once, I think Mr Linky worked for me...

  9. Hi, This is my first at Magpie Tales. Had to do it at the spot, now or else... a week would pass me by and I'd wonder," Oh! that Magpie is gone?"

    ReplyDelete
  11. Thought provoking prompt, thanks for posting it Willow :o)

    ReplyDelete
  12. great prompt!!!

    I just posted my Magpie :)

    on my way to read others

    ReplyDelete
  13. Okay, Veenz, got you covered. No worries! :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I know...a bit early this week. Gotta keep you on your toes!

    Leo, several have mentioned the idea of having more than one Magpie prompt per week. What say the rest of you?

    ReplyDelete
  15. A bit of concrete thought although the offset not exactly as I wanted it. Will try to configure. Running out of visual memory. What else is new! Hope you can figure it out nonetheless! :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'll take a double Magpie prompt each week, no problems, Willow :D

    One on Wednesdays and the other on Saturdays..

    ReplyDelete
  17. A short haiku... and hopefully time will lend to some moments for continuing Jack's tale later in the week. Enjoy all.

    ReplyDelete
  18. An inspired and inspiring image. Thank you, Willow!

    ReplyDelete
  19. A little more rock and roll, this week.

    ReplyDelete
  20. wow, you keep us inspired,
    and keep me busy too.
    thanks for the treat.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Linked an old one, but will have a new one on Tuesday (oh, yeah... gotta new one)!

    I say "no" to more than one Magpie per week. People already have the option to interpret an image in more than one way, and you don't limit the number of entries we can have, so...

    But that's just me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I knew instantly what to do with this one.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Unlike Michael above I found this a hard one as I am neither a writer nor a poet but I have given it a go!

    ReplyDelete
  24. This is my first entry and I hope you enjoy it as I enjoy the works of writers art I found here.Such a beautiful picture, a muze I could not ignore neither wait to post on.

    See,I waited too long to post at the last magpie,and that didn't feel that good at all ! But it is there to read too.

  25. I thought of a mirror but one that saw things different that what they might be.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I didn't want to write two pieces. It's not my FAULT. The mirror made me do it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oops, wrong time again. Better late than never.
    And not a fairy tale this time.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have reflected my poem in a letter
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is my first Magpie Tale, and it certainly won't be the last. So inspiring!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Nothing came through the window for me last week, but this frame is just what I needed. Thanks, Willow!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Walnut, the mirror? Hey, you're the one who wants a new 'pie every 10 minutes! hee-hee-hee!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Attempted a second poem... a second link to this one, but not sure it is posting here.... ???

    Would love to see more than prompt per week, finding this very inspirational... Thank you Willow.

    ReplyDelete
  33. My post is ready!!! (Casta Zero) I couldn't wait for the weekend...the promt was way to inspiring. Thanks Willow! ps - more than one prompt per week sounds challenging but your pictures are so good that I am up for it!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Nice prompt.Here is my entry 'Who am I'

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks for a great prompt once again!

    I hope you enjoy! As a young writer I very much appreciate as well as much encouraged by all your inspiring comments! Thankyou! (:

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm late this week.

    Great prompt Willow. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  37. at first I couldnt think of anything to fit in with my little fable begun last time, but then voila. great photo

    ReplyDelete
  38. Here we go again..this was the most fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I obviously just got in on the middle. Mind if I just follow along for a while?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I have been greedy this week doing two Magpies Tales

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think one Magpie per week is good. People always have the option to use your wonderful prompt more than once. Your prompts are so good that I think just the one is perfect.

    This week I decided to work on a short story that has been milling around in my noodle for a few weeks. I have decided to do it in parts. I hope you enjoy part one.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm back to play again. Thanks for the prompt :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I hated missing #36 but am back for #37. Where I understand "Walnut and Pearl's" excitement, one per week is certainly sufficient...how would I find any extra time to read/comment on more than that from everyone?!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Loved-hated it, which translates into GREAT WORK! Bring on more! LOL.

  45. its friday night...that means magpie for me...shiver, shiver...

    ReplyDelete
  46. Friday night Magpie for me too!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I never thought this picture would influence me and take me where it did!! Thank you!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love your prompts, Willow! One, two, three per week is fine with me. Doubt if I can participate in more than one, but would love to read those who do.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh my god, this one was such FUN! Such fun... I wrote a short story, no french this time. I hope you enjoy it!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hope everyone had a great week. The Mags would suggest that everyone had a perfect writing week. As always I am baffled, humbled and in complete love with the calibre of writers that come to Mag.

    Willow, as always my dear, a profound and heartfelt thanks for being who you are.

    To everyone else Be Inspired Today. Love and Light, Sender

  51. I actually found this Magpie Tail quite a challenge... looking forward to getting some other peoples Magpies read this afternoon.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Didn't have a clue about this one, thought I'd pass on it, but woke up this morning to find that a verse - of sorts - had flown in during the night.

    ReplyDelete
  53. A simple thank you... Enjoy my friends.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Insomnia...one of the great maladies.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Finally inspiration struck - another cracking prompt Willow...

    ReplyDelete
  56. I spend quite a bit of time on each Magpie post so I'm afraid that one a week is about all I could handle.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Although I added my name right at the beginning this is the first time that I have contributed.

    ReplyDelete
  58. oh my...difficult this week, too much reflection.

    ReplyDelete
  59. not very good this time but there it is.

    ReplyDelete
  60. This was a tough one for me...but glad i did it...thank you Willow for another amazing prompt...hope everyone has a wonderful week!
    :-)

    ReplyDelete
  61. got one in this time :) - your prompts really make me work!

    ReplyDelete

  63. EEK! I skipped a week! Back now...kinda...

    ReplyDelete
  64. Once a week -- as Jeff mentioned you can enter more then one poem, you are only limited by your imagination.

    So many people post so early , it seems already like two or three. just my take.

    I am just happy you do this even one time a week.

  65. My first post here, and really under the wire, inspired by stories of survivors of the Titanic. Thanks for the opportunity. Enjoy!

  66. Brand new piece up. Just for Magpie Tales. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Hi,
    Been gone 3 weeks from Magpie, but stayed up late to get today's magpie baked by 8am.

    ReplyDelete
  68. A last minute attempt for me this week, but I like quick challenges. Good prompt to work with, Willow!

  69. Blessed to finally have a job but the full-time student and full-time job schedule is taking its toll.
    Times till squeezed out for this. :)
