I know it's a busy week for all you American Maggies. For those of you who would still like to participate, I tacked on an extra day. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. xx(my word verification is "blest"...how perfect is that?)
So glad for the extra day! Great picture.
Hi Willow, My cup runneth over....
Oooh you are early. Glad to join in, I love the Magpies. :-)
so, I'm REALLY late with last week's and actually early with this week's MAG...so maybe I break even? ;) Happy Thanksgiving!
To Willow and everyone, have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Make it truly meaningful: Don't shop! Relish this holiday for it's blessings, it's meaning, and for the chance to spend quality time with loved ones. The stores and malls will still be there next week! Rick
i hope this reaches you Magpie! still a bit wobbly with links.Anyway here goes.
Second try!! must be extremely wobbly on the linky. Here's hoping!
I like early!
Hi Willow, didn't realise you were posting so early, my link is actually for last week's picture so I hope thats ok? I will get on to something for current prompt, promise!
Another poem that falls outside the prompt pic, I'm afraid. And this one is wrapped up in a longer post that - so far, anyway - seems to have deterred all but the most dedicated of blog readers! So if it's pure verse you're after, vault over the prosey bits and land on the poem! (Although I'd love to hear from anyone who's got time for the whole package).
Mine's a little odd. Happy Thanksgiving, y'all.
Loved this picture. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
This is my first Magpie without the photo prompt because I wrote it before I saw this. It was perfect. My Cup Runneth Over!
Willow I messed up I think 23 is from last week. I am not sure how I did that but my brain (I almost wrote brian lol) is tired!
I will definitely compose a poem, its time to exercise my mind. thanks for this opportunity!
Wow, a lot of cup runneth over here! Mine touched on that as well, must be the season!Happy Thanksgiving!
Well, my name is there, but whether the link will work remains to be seen!
What a surprise - it won't! I'll try again.
Number 32 won't, but number 33 will. Isn't life strange? :)
Wow... I don't think I'ver ever been this early. :)
Done it. And it was a fun one to do.
Done! It poured out of me...apparently the photo prompt touched a nerve. :-)Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Finally posted mine. I wrote it last night and didn't do anything with it. Got to polish it up a smidge today, then. As you can see from the photo, it needed polishing.

This one was a challenge for me. I ended up going minimalist with a haiku. Happy Thanksgiving to all those who celebrate it, and I am thankful for this place of inspiration and community.-Mary (Writing in the Bachs)
Entered a tale,Thanks for the inspiration,Happy Thankgiving!

Thanks for the fun challenge. I asked above how to copy the photo- but I messed around until I figured it out. :)
Hi Willow and fellow Magpies, I did a Magpie last week about a doll, I found an old childhood photo of me, my sister and the doll if anyone interested its on my blog.http://sortofwriting.blogspot.com/2010/11/that-doll-and-me-in-photo.html
Thanks, as always,..and a wonderful Thanksgiving, to you, to all!!
This is my first try at Magpie. I look forward to it.
Not much of a Thanksgiving poem, but a poem nonetheless, hopefully. Now I can devote myself to the important things, like cooking and eating. ;) Happy Thanksgiving, all.(My verification code is 'slugsly' somehow that doesn't seem to rank up there with 'blest....')
The winning cup for Magpie!!
Another ace prompt. Thanks, Willow
Your photos are story teller!!Thanks for sharing.
Nostalgic shoeboxes filled with precious memories... Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
Everybody's goin' all bicycle on me, I couldn't resist.
I realize that the picture is of a loving cup and my story is centered around a mug of tea....but perhaps you'll allow me the stretch?
A quick one, this week.
It's not vacation season here but my brain's on holiday (read to find out).Cheers and happy hols!:)
wonderful prompt...thank you, once again.happiest of thanksgivings to you...
Happy Thanksgiving to US!!!I feel celebratory and watched all day yesterday the Macy Parade! Even tried to have mockturkey! Then watched Miracle on 34th Street! Love that show! Both the old and new versions! Now for Black Friday power shopping dreaming!
With Tgiving and lousy weather, I'm surprised anything emerged. It did, in layers, differing parts at differing moments for differing apparent reasons to yield what seems like a 'whole'.Keep enjoying the holiday!Trulyfool
Work is standing in the way of my inspiration and imagination but I tried!!!
Most likely my longest story yet. Oddly it may be lengthy yet it's all about everything that is superficial. Cheers!
You inspired me to pen a short story as well willow. Entitled "Winner", but I'm not sure about that.
Loved reading the earlier entries - I've posted, it's not me at my best but I think it holds.
I'm new to this, so be gentle ;)
Thanks as always - hope you're having a great thanksgiving weekend!
Love this pic! Thanks Willow!
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Lovely prompt (as usuall) and inspiring - winning and losing, jing and jang...life.
Thanks for another wonderful photo. I trust that your Thanksgiving was good.
Oh, I missed my new obsession. Just a short one this week.I can't wait to read your tales.Thanks, Willow. : )
I'm unable to enter this week, but I'll still be here to have a read.LenaX
I'm glad to be on the list, now I'm making the tour!
We're here as fading blooms.
coming inunder the wire, but better late than never...smiles.
Here is mine, right behind Brian (GULP)...
That loooong weekend sure made me post this one days after I wrote it!! But here it is nonetheless! :)Now am off to read... Have a great week ahead!
I came in under an even lower wire than Brian, ds, and kavisionz. There is room for still more late-comers, however!
Hey, nobody's considered late until Tuesday afternoon. Come on, jump in! The water's fine.
A perfect prompt for the season Willow! Check out Poets United and go about 4 or 5 posts down...there is a little something about Magpie Tales mentioned there...take a look...hope everyone has a wonderful week! :-)
...getting back in the swing of things after being away for a wedding gathering and of course holiday goodies... so nice to be able to add magpie to my list of things to catch up on!! thanks Willow for such an inspiring and warm venue to share. i'm looking forward to moving about and seeing what all the lovely bloggers have been up to...:)
I just stumbled upon this parallel universe of poetry for the first time today. Seems worthy of exploration, and capable of inspiration.
I cannot keep up reading all the contributions to Magpies. I almost repeated something I wrote before way back when we started but I did get a new inspiration, so I'm on with this prompt. Can't wait to read some others too.
Well Willow this keeps growing and growing. How wonderful we all want to put it out there and write. I love the idea of your reading your poems. I am working on learning how to do that. Not that the poems are that great I just like to learn a new trick once and awhile. blessingsQMM
I really had a hard time with this one. Haunted me all week. Only just came barreling out earlier tonight...
Hope I'm not too late. (Thinks . . . its' Tuesday afternoon where I am before it's Tuesday afternoon where Willow is!)
