  10. I had to write to her - and now, she is a part of the Upper La Cresta Sojourn - a book lenth poem I am writing today (in one day a la Bernadette Mayer.)

    My Poem for today.

  13. Something a little light-hearted, this week.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I wasn't sure how to treat this one; I thought I'd pass and then I had an idea.
    Most of your prompts do that to me.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm in this week, Tess. Your prompts go from the unusual and quirky to the hyper and hyped arch-famous.

  16. I like this prompt...written long ago

  17. On our way to Italy and lots of art we have studied for years... a strange experience always
    when the real thing is less imposing than the printed image.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Every man has thought of this at some time....

    ReplyDelete
  19. Couldn't resist: I re-posted a lighthearted essay from my other blog last year about dear Mona...

  20. This one lept out of my mind onto the post...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Her smile brings out the best in me!

    ReplyDelete
  22. With Cad I have to disagree.
    Her smile brings out the worst in me!

    ReplyDelete
  23. At first I thought I wouldn't be able to do a thing with her... but then I had an idea...

    ReplyDelete
  24. I took one look and said, I'll read others; not
    touching this one. Thanks for posting.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Had fun with this. It took me a while. Hope no one takes offense as if having a child or loving a man is the only way ... oh well, not supposed to explain. Let the piece speak for itself.

    ReplyDelete
  26. She's fascinating, isn't she. I had one--now up with an extra "squinch."

    ReplyDelete

  30. Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this one! Fun idea!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I hope a limerick counts as poetry, otherwise this could be my first and last attempt at 'culchur'!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Another great one Tess... thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  33. My post is up! :)
    Sorry, I posted the wrong link the first time around..That's why two links. Hope that's fine. :)

  34. i haven't written a magpie tale for a while - what a great way to spend my morning!

    ReplyDelete
  35. The hecticness of life continues to conspire against me, but this painting reminded me of a short piece featuring a painting that I wrote a while back that was first published on The Pygmy Giant website about six months back.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Caveat: my piece is an emotionally brutal/nasty experience, with tone-consistent characters and language.

    In short, if you have tender sensibilities, it might be best if you don't read it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I've a humorous streak, this very week (not like me...*ahem*) Ah, Mona....

    ReplyDelete
  38. ... behind that smile. how fun! thanks Tess!

  40. I am so thankful that you published her picture. I read a little about Lisa del Giocondo and am so glad I did. I see her totally different. I just love her now. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hi Tess, I have just posted a second one this week, a continuation of Magpie 57, The Saving of Sobul. I hope this is okay.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow! ooer.. I'll have a thunk.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I thought I had an original idea until I googled it and found that in Feb 2011 someone made a claim that his model was a man.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Not a man, Sukipoet, but decidedly peculiar!

    ReplyDelete

  49. Well Whadyaknow!? I got something finished after all. A teensy bit of a contrast from the first one :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. This is cool! I'll definitely do this more!! When I first found this, I didn't know it changed...then I came back later and there was something new! So cool!

    Love,
    Kitty
