  28. Was going to have this week's read by William Shatner, but changed my mind.

  29. The image is blue ribbon conjuring,
    for I love macro texture shots, wood,
    brick, rocks, pebbles, stamen, pistol,
    brass, wrought iron, chrome--as you
    do it seems.

    Negotiation, diplomacy, can't we just
    get along, accommodation, with love
    as the common denominator only
    peel the first layer of poetic epidermis
    off your poem, your thoughts, your symbols.
    With Cairo in the news and on our minds,
    revolution, war, anarchy, freedom fighters,
    raised fists, beat downs, and somehow
    it led me to thinking green, to the real
    issue in terms of our natures, that maybe
    once before Babel, we all spoke the same
    language; but no more.

  30. Oops! Madness strikes again...

    ReplyDelete
  31. I made it on time this round. Beautiful picture!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ours is now posted. At first the Junk Thief editorial team felt stumped on this one and felt we couldn't rise to the challenge. Then it hit us like a ton of...magpies.

  56. Well, there it is. Took longer than I expected - but alas - it is finished enough for my blog. The first link is incorrect - still leads to my blog but not the correct day/entry. follow the second entry for magpie #51

    ReplyDelete
  57. After lingering on this blog for months (creepy, I know), I've made my first attempt. Thanks for doing this. It is lovely.

    ReplyDelete

  64. I've been off my Magpie game for awhile... this is a wonderful prompt to get me back into the swing of things! Thanks, Tess!

  65. Hi! I just found this blog a few days ago, and was inspired to write a poem, after looking at the photo in this prompt. Of course, I didn't read the posting date right -- I thought today was the day to post it -- so this morning when I went to link my entry, I realized I was too late.

    Anyway, I'll be more careful, in the future, for the sake of playing along properly. ;)

    And here's a link to my poem: even though it is too late, I know if I don't post my first attempt now, I may be too shy to join in next week.
