  5. Hi Willow,
    I don't get any snow where I live so did a bit of imagining.
    I'm also working slowly through older magpie promts, so if anyone wants to visit and checkout some of the others I have posted they are more than welcome to pop over and leave a comment... I can put the kettle on...
    Thanks again for a wonderful prompt..

  6. I woke up this morning to the first gentle snowflakes of the season. A lovely welcome to December.

  7. Hi Willow,
    We also do not have snow. It would have been fun. From news reports apparently the snow came early this time. We could just use a lot of imaginations in our postings.

  8. we had our first snow fall last week- so this post was very timely! Cheers and thanks Willow for this stellar photo! Is this just right out your front door?

  9. Thanks, Tess, very appropriate since we are snow-bound here in Ireland at the moment and we dont normally get much snow.

  10. So much snow here I'm snow-blind. Concentrated on the door. Thanks for another invigorating prompt.

  12. i love these magpie prompts! but, i can't just look at a picture and make something up about them...they have to be a true story for me. i find that odd. and it has flurried at my house all morning too for the first time....ah pretty snow.

  13. I tend to be taken away by too many distractions.
    Thank you for this reminder, to sit and write still.

    Cheers!

  14. Winter has not arrived yet,
    or so some say, but it has
    sent ahead heralds of snowflakes
    to announce its intention.
    I posted my poem before
    I finished the audio mp3.
    Tess has infected we magpies
    with the need to hear the
    poetics, to give it voice,
    to tease the air with the
    author's own intonations
    and rumble.

  15. I think any credibility I may have had just flew out the window. LOL.

    Can't wait to see what others came up with.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm attempting to step out in style - or in, come to think of it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. It was really awesome to be prompted. Thanks!
    Don't really like the piece that churned out but I'm glad to have been given the impetus to makes some words.

    ReplyDelete
  18. well what a coincidence...and i am actually in early...

    ReplyDelete
  19. Lovely photo - thanks Willow!

    ReplyDelete
  20. The picture just happened to remind me of a very old poem I wrote, so I dusted off the snow and tears and posted it despite its faults. It's a very wintery poem, at least.

    ReplyDelete
  21. We just got done with an early snow and that is what I thought of.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Brrr...can't wait to get in!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. have one in,
    Thanks for the inspirations.
    Cheers!

  24. Hi Willow, I submitted my entry, but accidentally submitted another post, too. My official entry's #47, Back in Town. Please delete #46, I can't seem to delete it. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Loving "winter" in North Carolina, but I know all about it as I hail from Northern Illinois and Northern Michigan where 12 inches of snow doesn't faze one! Although 1 inch of snow halts everything here in NC. I LOVE it. Thank you for this challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Willow, i hope my imagination will work. I have sumbitted mine and it is dedicated to you. Thanks for the wonderful photo.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yaaayy!! This week, I posted my poem early on! And this magpie, I am sure, has many many stories to offer! I am all set to read 'em!!! :)

    Happy Magpie-ing, y'all...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Another lovely prompt, thanks Willow. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Once again I gazed at the prompt and figured no way, but this morning a thought kept nagging at my brain.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Another wonderful image. Thanks for the jumpstart.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Reason, okay got ya covered! I deleted #46. :)

  33. Another wonderful photo, thanks Tess.

    ReplyDelete
  34. This one had lots of meaning for me. Great photo prompt.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Tess,

    Winter images give me exercise, work me beyond my 'comfort zones', but I'm glad for the chance. This one birthed in due time.

  36. I'm in! It's like you handed me that one on a silver platter my friend. Thanks for the inspiration.

  37. Loved this picture and the many stories it told...

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oops. I wrote my entry earlier today. Then forgot to enter it in the linky. Now here it is.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hello guys! I did a short story this time. Its kind of dark, I can't seem to grow out of my fascination with it. I hope you will all give me feedback so I can improve myself. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  40. The snowy steps bring back memories.

    ReplyDelete
  41. This was a fun wintery magpie! I haven't posted in awhile...really have been ill...two weeks with a three day stint in the hospital, then a bout with kidney stones. Not liking growing older! Now my desk top totally died, beyond salvation - like its owner!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. A provocative photo of buried emotion like the images covered in snow.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Although we do not have snow yet,
    it was the cold and stones which grabbed me !
    and entrances- being allowed back in !
    Happy Magpie- thanks.

  44. Loved this prompt Willow. I want to live in that cottage.

    ReplyDelete
  45. 'Welcome to the hearth'...a poem about how social media has transformed many of our lives....

    ReplyDelete
  46. oh i was just wondering when we might get our first snow fall on this side...

    ReplyDelete
  47. a little something to follow along from last week...:)

    ReplyDelete
  48. For me, this picture brought out thoughts of the snow and what it does to home-bound people. I really don't know why. Thanks for the beautiful pic

  49. This late thing is becoming a habit.

    ReplyDelete
  50. A snow post!! I have used your picture to tell my tale because it is just so apt for my piece about an unexpected visitor on my snowy doorstep - Terresa!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Not quite sure if my little poem is quite done, but my brain turned in a funny direction this evening with the prompt.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I didn't think I was going to post this week, but I was reminded of a tiny piece of flash from a year or so ago that is more in fitting with the current weather than with the image.
    Thankfully I live in permanent sunshine so don't need to experience the winter any more, but there are many who do, and without the comfort of a warm fire to return home to every night.
    But for the fickle winds of fate, though...

    ReplyDelete
  53. My piece is finally written and posted. Funny how nothing comes to one for days and then it's there, in a flash. Whether it's good or not is something else!

    ReplyDelete
  54. nice start to woolly sock time!! Thanks for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thank you again Willow for the opportunity to stretch myself. Funny how a visual picture can become a magic wand of creativity. This answers my question. I am very visually motivated.

    ReplyDelete
  56. For this week's beautiful image, I sipped some hot cider and remembered a best friend.

    ReplyDelete
  57. sudden inspiration at 2 thirty - here it is finally.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I can't say much about the snow, but....
    :))

    ReplyDelete
  59. A tad late, I know, but I have put a response in place. Great prompt.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I will be late to my own funeral....happy Monday everyone! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  61. In the nick of time......! Glad to see I'm not the only straggler....!
