Closing my blog on the 13th. Going out on Magpie with a bang!
Well that was something. I was just about to post a poem with an opera angle, when i saw the new promopt. Synchronicity.
When I woke up this morning at 5 a.m local time, 11 p.m EST, I wrote a single line. Returning home to find this beautiful image, I sat down with my notebook - and this one line: "I once wrote the words to a song." I thought to myself: that might work.
lovely prompt.have fun, everyone!
Thanks for the prompt. It's wonderful!
this one was just a song in my heart waiting to be born! Thanks for an excellent and truly inspiring prompt!
Jeff, you will be sorely missed in the blogosphere, my friend.
Thanks, all. It's a shot I took of a piece of vintage French sheet music. Added a bit of texture and ta-da!
Sorry to see Jeff go, he will be missed for sure. Beautiful prompt, Tess. Don't you just love vintage sheet music with its lovely artwork? My daughter collects music and musical instruments (she is a very gifted musician who was blessed...or cursed as the case may be...with a perfect ear.
Very lovely prompt. This one just flowed from my heart. I hope you like it.
A wonderful prompt that touched a memory instantly, just lovely, thank you.
You pick interesting prompts. I already had a song in my head when I wrote my poem. Blessings!
Love this photo ... music is indeed magic!
Something a little different, this week.
Hi, Willow. Everyone's symphony is different. I hope you don't mind that I took liberties with your prompt. : )

this image is gorgeous! I don't think I did it justice. Or really I guess what I mean is I could write about it several more times!
Lovely prompt!Wanna try this poetry form ?http://thepoetryforms.blogspot.com/
Now music and particularly musicians I know something about, excellent choice,Tess, at least as far as I am concerned. Thanks
Love this prompt, I'll post something for it (a prosey essay perhaps) methinks.
Thanks for this photo Tess, I hope you don't mind me playing around with it. I have used an idea from an old post; as soon as I saw your photo it 'coloured' my post for today.
Just love this one, probably everyone does!!
Great prompt Tess! Thanks so much.
Gonna miss you Jeff! Keep in touch.Something light for my post on this prompt.
Lovely image again..thanks.
This image made me think of my daughter, who is an accomplished pianist. Thanks for the prompt.
This one sang to me!
I am not musical so real challenge
"There's a song in my heart!" LOL. Thanks!
I wish I could say 'I am the music man'...Sadly, others think I am anything but...
I wrote about the sounds of the new day.
Great place for working through family feuds, Magpie is, look you! This excellent prompt gave Hubs and me a chance to confront . . . issues.I DO NOT BELIEVE THIS! The verification word is "CHERI"

French impressionist composer for me. This prompt should harvest a vast range of subjects.
I've just posted my second attempt at this incredible exercise. I hope others will stop by. I intend to see what others have come up with as well.
This is a really beautiful prompt... the moment I saw it, the words for my poem just flowed into my head, and through my fingers, onto my blog... Loved this one a lot!!!

Phew! After weeks in the wilderness I've managed to scrape something together for this one. Now I shall go read the others!Thanks Willow
Hope you all enjoy the new music,And the new words.
You got me going on a musical extravaganza this week.
Hi! Looking at your photo this morning reminded me of high school, dancing in the gym before classes began. It's where I fell in love with the father of my four children. Wonderful memories.
I'm in! This was timely Tess - I've had this one swirling around in my head for weeks, and it needed to come out today. xo
A great one for musicologist bloggers.
Way too cool -- I love this one.
I loved this image and enjoyed time spent with it so much.
YAY! I'm back.....this week's prompt was rather a moving one for me. I can't wait to read (what I can manage!) what else is on offer!
Wow, Magpies have become over whelming; too many posts cannot read them all.....Well we do have until Tuesday, more to come??
your prompt is superb... it was the perfect frame to my requiem for my beloved Verdell... thanks a lot as usual!
It is always a mystery to me when these poems come bursting out of me from one of your photographs...I hesitated with this one...not how I usually write... Tess, you are one interesting Muse...
It's up! For some reason it was hard - a challenge!Am now trying to visit as many as possible before new Mag one goes up! Time is against me - help!
I celebrated my birthday with a poem. Thank you for the inspiration.
Happy Birthday, Jo!
Happy birthday Jo!
Awesome photo! I started to write something which turned into something completely unexpected. I didn't use what I started to write.Thank you for the inspiration!
SKIN DEEP! On that Note....John
