  4. Typed that one out straight away, must have been waiting for your prompt, Tess.
    Not based on actual happenings, I am glad to say.

  5. Yes this one came on rather fast. I have to say the prompt was sheer perfection for what I am feeling right now and the poem well what can I say? I hope you like it anyway.

  38. Have to say the 'dryness' of this photo puzzle
    exemplifies my feeling on the jigsaw currently laid out on my table. Desert-, sawdust- I run screaming for the fridge- hopefully I can make it in time for next week! Thanks.

  39. Hi,
    This is what came to my mind when I saw the prompt...

  40. I wrote this one for another earthquake. It seems to fit the photo in both the shattered landscape, and the interconnectedness of our existence on this planet.

    ReplyDelete
  41. A mistake in the URL I entered, WIllow, but the link takes readers to the intended post! Same theme as ~T~ above, and maybe one or two others.

    ReplyDelete
  42. sigh... i just keep falling more and more in love with writing and this writing community. thanks Tess and to all the writers for such a cool space...

    ReplyDelete

  44. This prompt is a CERTAIN food for thought (and poetry), Tess.. looking forward to reading as many magpies as possible!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Like the tortoise and hare, me... Slow and steady but get there eventually! :)

  46. Some prompts I look at and it takes ages to decide what to write about but given the events of the last few months... floods, cyclones & earthquakes... I knew straight away what to write.

  47. My blog, Writerquake, is three years old today -- and your earthquakey-looking image tops my blogoversary post.

    Please come by for a piece of birthday quake (sorry, I just couldn't resist the pun!).

  48. Great pic prompt, thanks. I think my poem still needs some work, but I'm posting it anyway, before the link closes.

  49. Hi! I tracked you down from Writerquake's site. I will try to join in, but for the meantime, here's my reaction to the image you've posted.

    There is a black hole in the land
    And another in my door.
    There's a black hole in the window,
    And a black hole in the floor.
    They look like missing people -
    The one's who went away.
    They are ghosts, I guess.
    And I confess
    I see them every day.

  55. After finishing a poetry challenge yesterday, I was in dire need of new prompt. I have been here before, but managed to misplace the site address. This should be fun.
