This one came quickly, easily. Probably not what others will see, but I felt it instantly.
This is quite a photo...I think this one fits the bill. Hope so.
Yes, this one did spark memories of fun times with friends. Hope everyone enjoys.
Really inspiring picture Tess. Beautiful. The poem is mournful of a childhood gone, I suppose.
It certainly made my mind slide off in a weird direction!
This prompt brings up a strange passage in "Hamlet." Who could have guessed?
These people whose mail I used to deliver had a sled propped against the wall by their door, that said "rosebud" on it. Mine's up.
Wholly unexpected reaction from this one.
Thanks for another beautiful photo!
Great photo Willow- I enjoy the memories your photos bring me!
Mine's "Citizen Kane" inspired, only I went with the polar opposite in symbolism. Brrr...heehee...no pun intended!
This one came to me in a minute..I wonder why??Much fun!!
I have a sled very similar to the one in the picture, hence my story.
Thanks for a great prompt, I ressurected an old character from a previous Magpie for this weeks, a bit longer than usual.
I slipped and slid on the ice today without the help of a sledge!
a different kind of romance...bkm
Tale 44, and that is one of my primenumbers, born in 1944.I was writing this poem last night,and I keyed into your line/I will sleep when I am dead/for the connection.
. . . disaster on the piste
Willow . . the link at No.4 (G.Snape) takes me to what appears to be the "Blogspot" website, not to Geraldine's Magpie. Is it just me, or have other bloggers noticed?
A poem about chaos and family.
just had to add a few more fun bits to my earlier post- too much fun Willow! Merry Christmas!
A little light relief, this week.
love the photo, great prompt for an almost-winter week...
Tess,I wanted an Orson Welles poem, but found much better entry into some lines I'd been playing with for a week.'Winter' poems push my boundaries (I'm just saying).Trulyfool
Liked this one... you may be surprised though.
Hi, Willow.I see some have had fun. I went rather morbid. : (
I finally slid in early!!!....Weeeeeeeeee!Another awesome prompt Willow! :-)
This one was hard for me. I'll bet you can't tell what I am reading right now? Oh well, I think this might fail but I tried. I worked on it all day. The result makes me a little sad but I'm going to share it anyway. I am not sure that I did the picture justice. Great photo Tess!
Dear Magpies: This came faster for me than last week's prompt! Must have been the thing I have with "doors"! However, I can get truly inspired by Rose Bud! Hope you like it! :)
Watch out for that tree!!!
Hope this isn't too much of a downer for you all...But it's what I felt. I wrote it, and read it, and couldn't believe that I had written it.
This photo is beautiful. It made me sad about not being a child anymore (which totally shows in the poem!). Thanks for the prompt!
Another effort in.
Oh yea.. enjoyed writing for this one!! :)Now, on to reading... Have a great week, y'all...
The snow has a lot to answer for...
Thanks for making me remember our Cadillac Fleetwood '57, complete with useless wings and brocade upholstery: a home from home, if ever there was one :-)
It is my first time here and enjoyed writing for the prompt here.My heart went out to this old sled and just imagine how it had stood by you till the wear and tear began!!
Thanks for the wonderful image. It brings memories of sledding in Kansas, Michigan and southern California. (Mount Wilson, 5000 feet, is near Los Angeles.)
Wisps of snow and that picture of a sled has led me back to a snowy day. New Snow
The prompt was a beautiful one and I did have many memories, even a funny one about sledding with my brothers and sisters. However, I chose another picture this time. Hope it is ok...)Thanks for giving us this place to writeWysteria

I had so much stuff swirling around in my head, and what finally made it onto the paper was not at all what I expected!
i am sure you say somewhere but what camera and lenses do you use???
Late to the party, but mine's finally up.
Great photo. It sparked a tender flame in my heart.
Thank you for another inspiring picture.
Such a fine perspective
How embarrassing! I thought I put in my link when I commented, but I didn't.
A nightmare or fantasy? You decide.
Oh Tess, this was GREAT! As soon as I saw your picture, visions and memories of my childhood came flooding forth!! Thanks for allowing me a wonderful time in memories past...
A late comer this week. Too busy with tasks to let my imagination soar. But here now.
I had some dificulty with an un familiar object but think i fanally got it. Well i hope i did anyway...;0
thanks for the challenge, i wrestled a bit making success all the more sweet.
Willow, as always, thanks for the memories. jt
I believe I arrived a little lateyet I posted it just the sameGuess I missed the opening gatebut still, I'm glad I came
ah...and so it continues...amazingly, i managed to work it in -- loving this challengethank you!
Thanks Willow, what your do here is quite magical! I too loved the photo... I'm looking forward to popping around to see the various perspectives I'm sure it inspired.a nice weekend to all:)
It's been awhile for me, but I'm in with one this week.
I always write and then read the others...I always seem to be a bit on the morbid or loss of loved ones side of things. I try to view the prompt and immediately write my offering. So, I guess I'm a bit of a morbid person. Anyway, now I'm off to read the others. Lovely photo, Willow.
This picture reminded me of an easier, more carefee time. Thank you!
Now I'm hunting for my childhood sledge, last seen lurking in an outhouse! Once I've found it I'm going to repaint its scarlet runners.
Way off prompt again, I'm afraid, but happy to be aboard. Click on the name for a look at what's there.
Beautiful photo once again, Willow. It was not an easy go for me this week...I had a bumpy ride!
I'm ready to sled over and see everyone else!
Sled, sleigh, Twas the Night Before Christmas... always wanted to do a parody of this.
Finally, it's up and my wife likes it.
itz great to return to magpie...
Something didn't seem right yesterday... here in sunny California, it was 86... I walked into the local Salvation Army looking for a particular item for a creative project I want to do... there on the wall, was your sled, sitting there waiting to be rescued for a hill in the waiting.
thanks willow--it is always a wonderful ride!
Able to reminisce about my gramps with this one. Thanks! :o)
I'm in! Inspired by your beautiful photo and a mean ol' day.
Blogger was uncooperative yesterday, but I was able to get my Magpie posted this morning!
This is my first time, though I've been following the prompts for a while now.This one went up as a guest post - inspiration exactly when I needed it most!
