  14. A Mother's Love is up - frantically written in ten minutes as I take a breather from last minute check list for my son's wedding on Friday.

    Seasons greetings to everyone and whether or not you believe in the reason for the season, may your Christmas be filled with love, joy and peace as we give thanks for the blessings in our lives.

  18. Your poem, Tess, was as full of
    darkness as it was light, in equal
    portions; mine dipped deeper
    into the darker side of the season.
    Synchronicity abounds, for I logged
    in as #44, my birth year.

  21. This is really weird.. I had a poem brewing in my mind a few days back... then I forgot about it... and today, I saw this Magpie prompt, and voila!! The (forgotten) poem returned to me, and just continued and completed itself in my mind, and found its way on my blog too!!
    Thank you, Tess, for this beautiful picture...

    Thursday will find me reading all the lovely pieces put up here... :))
    Have a great day, peeps!!

  22. Thanks for the prompt. I went for the laugh again...and mean no disrespect, but really don't you think God is up for a laugh too? Merry Christmas to you, and thank you for the Magpies and your wonderful blog too!

  24. Hi Willow, I couldnt resist a short second attempt, such a lovely image.

  25. Found this challenging. I'm not religious, so I chose to write about a queen and her long-awaited son, not the Madonna and her child. I meant for it to be a happy piece, but it came out dark.

    Challenging though it may be, this is a great prompt! Thanks!

  30. I have nothing current, but back in September I posted a stained glass window poem. You'll need to scroll down to September 18th.

  31. Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays!

  32. The relationship between Mother and Child...oh the perspectives!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm not really into religious iconography. My offer is there...

  34. Three comments down, I'm a little late in pointing out that because of passage of time, comments have been automatically closed on the stained glass poem to which my link above directs you. If anyone wants to make any observations on the poem, please use the comments box beneath my current post. Maybe head it 'stained glass' for clarity. Thanks, Tess, for finding out the hard way!

  35. What a beautiful picture... I am spiritual, but not "religious." But this picture inspired reflection on belief...
