Interesting picture! I shall try to post something for tomorrow.
Am I first? No way!!!
A quickie, this week.
Another fun prompt. Always a good excuse to put off doing paperwork...
Were any actual lemons harmed in the taking of this picture?
Pancakes Day is calling me! Thanks for the reminder...
This image is for inspirational use only. No lemons were harmed in the making of this photograph.
Striking photo, its a lemon? I thought it was an orange, but never mind!
Intriguing. A lemon masacree.
I confess I'm guilty. I killed a lemon earlier today. And it wasn't the first.This picture really set my wheels in motion. Thanks, Tess.
When I saw the writing prompt this week I was really unsure how to make all these different elements resonate a single thought...but my fingers flew over the keys in a matter of seconds. love it when that happens! Thanks for the challenging prompt Tess!
Great image Tess, love your comment under the photo.
I'll write something new for this but in the mean time I submitted an old poem/ old post as it is right on point.
Love this image! Poor Lemon.
This photo was great it reminded me of a story my husband used to tell about his restaurant days in college. He worked in many a seafood place during those years and where there is seafood there is blood and lemons!
hmm..intriguing picture lead me write a Fiction 55
Sorry about the double post, don't know how that happened.Unless you like it, then I'm not sorry.Take your pick.
This is all for fun, but that's me!
wow de wowee...what a photo....had to mull on this one!
Fabulous prompt Tess! Thank you so much for the inspiration and pre-apologies for the rant.
Wonderful prompt Tess..Like the comment under the photo....
Wow! Loved this prompt, Tess! :)BTW wrote something for the previous magpie, but too late! :( This week's prompt was already up!
Well done Tess. Had lots of fun with this intriguing picture. Enjoy reading the various Magpie contributions of poetry, prose and tales too.
the picture screamed tragedy to me...
This fantastic prompt made for a fun write! Thanks!
Priyaiyer, please feel free to leave two entries this week if you like!
Fun. After reading the comments, I will think of this with my next plate of seafood and lemons at my favorite waterfront restaurant.
Good exercise. Thank you Tess!
Scariest. Prompt. Ever. Aaaaaarrrrrrrrgggghhhhh!
Wow. Pic is amazing and quirky. here is all I could think. :-)http://everythingincoherrent.wordpress.com/2011/03/01/sandwich/
This was a tough one for me! I riffed on that old SNL skit where Dan Ackroyd played Julia Child. Had fun with it!
succulent as sex...
very late, but better late than never.my fruits are fighting.
Friko, no, you're not late at all. We're open for entries until next Monday morning! Keep 'em coming!
Lolamouse, I LOVE that old SNL Julia Child spoof!
Lane and Brigid, no worries, I removed your extra links! :)
After yet another long inactive period of time I am back with a new Magpie. Couldn't stay away!Great inspirational prompt this week, the words just surged out of me!Thank you!
the red ink(?) freaks me out a bit, at first, I wanted to write some odd tale of murder but I find I ended up not leaning toward that directionthanks for inspiration.
The images are difficult to juxtapose in one entry. I tried though, and it surprised me. Thank you for this photo, tess.
First time here. Looks like fun...mind if I play!
Not quite lemonade.
Sorry I'm too late, I know, but thought I'd try.
I have tried again inspired by the slightly chilling but nevertheless awesome picture...hoping it has come out all right..
An exciting picture... my first time here, so bear with me. Thank you.
Tess says no lemons were harmed. At least one thumb was!
I saw something completely different in this shot.
That fork looks familiar.

I thought that when the world gives you lemons you try to walk on, only sometimes you can't.(trouble with fingers typing the wrong things)
It's history, sailors, and a surprising show of military intelligence over at my place.
This has to be one of the most interesting prompts here. I can't wait to gather the reads!
this one was a good test...bkm
Hey, no one is considered late until next Monday! We're open for business all week long, from Monday to Monday. So, jump in. The water's fine!
Yellow and red huh? Great prompt! Not so sure but gave it a go anyway and it's up!
I decided that it was an orange. And I went from there. Great photo regardless.
This image was simply MOST fascinating, Tess!! My mind went in one particular direction... too obvious maybe.. but well... that's me.. :)LOVED this one!! Now I simply HAVE TO read what others have to say.. teeheehee
My mind went in so many directions - but putting them down on paper was frustrating. This was not an easy prompt for me, but a GREAT exercise none-the-less. Very creative imagery here, Tess. Thank you!
It came to me in a dream . . .
Carnage in the kitchen and the pomegranate is to blame...
perhaps it is because Spring is in the air... i was touched and inspired by the fruitiness and colour of this prompt. thanks Willow! & early Springtime greetings to all the writers here!
I didn't know you could get blood lemons;-)
Mine cuts to the quick this week. :)
Didn't know what to make of the prompt. Decided to give it a friendly twist. so here goes.
The lemon's acid flavour continues! LOL
Oh the joy of sleuthing!!! Thanks Willow. ;-)
Tess,The lemon plus the hand print took me to the dimension.Tfool
Magpies: Oh how intriguing...I thought it was an orange...you say lemon, I say orange...tomato, tomato, splitting hairy citrus...hope you like my orange take!
I did it wrong. Go figure. Sorry. Next Monday I'll get it right... maybe.
Tess---THANK YOU!!!! This pic and the last one (puzzle pieces) inspired some of my best stories yet!!! You are wonderful to provide this opportunity. Thanks!!!!!
Finally made it--my first for 2011. I marvel at the synchronicity of this with the post before it and really hope it isn't trite.The other prompts were wonderful, I'm just too slow...
I haven't posted in awhile but this picture appealed to the forensic nurse in me!
I know I'm late but I still wrote one Tess! Hope you're having a wonderful week :)http://kat-thinkingplace.blogspot.com/2011/03/bitter-sweet-magpie-tales-55.html
I was led to your site by Katherine. It looks great. I must join.
