  5. Hi Willow, I have been taking a little break to pursue some writing and am back with a new Magpie tale, I went for hen rather than rooster.

  6. Hi Willow, I had great fun with this one.
    Like I said, "I had a brainwave".

    Bit longer than you ask for but I got carried away.

  7. Sue J. sent me here and it looks like fun. I hope I did the link right. Thank-you, Willow, for the great blog.

  8. I'm so pissed. Someone emailed me and said my poems barely make sense. and he further said, "Asians should not proceed writing in English." So this prompt is really timely. I have posted mine. Thank you willow. Your photo solicits vindication.

  9. Now this is a photo with character!
    Mine is done, and I'm working my way through the rest. :)

  10. Hi Willow
    This seems like a fun thing to do have given it a go this week (I'm not much of a writer).
    Tried the linky thing for last weeks posting but missed the deadline. Hope it has worked this time

  13. Just a quick quip while I attempt to intertwine this into Jack's tale.... Hope to be up again soon.

  14. This is the stuff of nightmares! Love it!

  15. I must admit, I did have a lot of fun with this particular photo shoot!

  16. I can just see you chasing this poor rooster around his run! I have my entry in but I nearly chickened out ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Marilyn, what? No chickening out on this one!

    ReplyDelete
  18. What a superb picture and creature!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love this photo, Willow. I was just thinking tonight how well your photos go with my blog's header.

  20. Nice image Willow.. couldn't help doing a light hearted take for the aggressive roo! :D

  22. Heeheehee - I never know how these will come out, and this one is kinda funny! Thanks.

  23. Dear Arian,
    So sorry and thanks for sharing. That shows the strength of Magpie Tales and how tightly bonded we are. I am born in Australia but I am proud of my South East Asian heritage as many of our friends here know.

    Magpie Tales have always been so welcoming, I have missed it as I've had this slight writer's block ever since Grandma passed away last week.

    Looking forward to all your magpies. And everyone else's too!

  24. This one shook me up..and then....you'll see!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I couldn't decide whether to "cock-a-doodle doo" or "bockbockbockbock".....so you can be surprized when you get there.....this is a fun one Willow. Hope you have a great Thursday! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Willow . . that's not a Magpie. It's a chicken! Yet it's a prompt to have us scratchin' around. I'll try to keep my pecker up.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This prompt rescued me from more self-indulgent blather. Or at least that's what it feels like.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I thought I was stumped with this one, willow, but then I remembered a certain speech...

    ReplyDelete
  29. I couldn't stop my Irish/French heritage from coming to the surface. ;0

  30. This one had me running around...headless!

    ReplyDelete
  31. After more than a month of no blogging, I am back... and what a prompt to resume my Magpie with!! heheh.. I just loved the image!! Had me going alright!

    Now, am off to read what y'all had to say!!
    Have a fun week ahead!

  32. Don't know what is up with Mr. Linky!
    I logged in at #54 an already got pushed
    onto #58. Guess so many magpies gather
    the cyber gnomes stay busy trying to
    multi-task and get it all into the
    Mag Mag, right?
    Do love your prompt too, and the
    poems are all over the barnyard,
    as usual; great fun to drop in
    a dozen or so new friend's sites
    and see what the manor muse has
    conjured up today, and this week.
    Stafford gave me the impetus for
    my piece actually, bringing back
    to the cortical surface Chaucer
    and Chanticleer.

  33. The games afoot, my dear Wats...Willow!
    Bring your revolver!

  34. I was putting together a deep ironic dialog for this then I thought, why bother?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Mine is up, Willow. Pardon my "fowl" language!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've set the feathers flying in my coop!

  37. I thought I would skip this week as I had a major computer incident and lost all my poetry and photos and documents on my laptop. I wasn't feeling that poetic. I don't like chickens even but I gave it a whirl.

    ReplyDelete
  38. How about a chicken as a gift?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hello, WIllow. This is my first poem for the Magpie blog, and the first time I have used the linking widget (above). I hope it sends visitors to the right poem! (The prompt picture is quite shivery)

  40. Didn't know roosters scared me until now.

  53. I really wondered what I would manage to write with such a prompt. But wonders of wonder, Magpie made me write something after all!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I have never done this post before, but the image was irresistable.
    NOW I will return and read all of your lovely entries.

  55. I might be putting my neck on the chopping block with this one!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hey, thanks for this prompt. I needed cheering up, and there was something really familiar about that bird.

    ReplyDelete
  57. The poem was inspired from my experience living on a farm. Seeing chicken's being made into dinner, the old fashioned way! Shocking, yes...it was definitly an eye-opener and grimace!

    ReplyDelete
  58. The killer is back! Heh-heh-heh.

    Wonderful!

  62. Willow, thanks for yet another wonderful challenging post. I'm learning new things each week that I participate...researching words, objects just to get ideas. Being a learner at heart, I love it. And I love the opportunity to write about it :)

  63. I'm a bit late this time, Willow has already posted a new prompt but I could not resist this picture :) Hope you'll read it anyway!
