A bit of a challenge today. Thanks, Tess.
thank you ! i love this one so much :)
Beautiful, peaceful prompt. Happy Monday all!
Thought I'd try to get in before Glenn this week.This is a true story.
thanks for the inspiration today...was running a bit dry...
Hi Tess, kindly delete my link.. there's something wrong with blogger at this moment, or maybe it's just my connection. My poem came out disfigured, in weird spacing..so i deleted it. Sorry for this. Thanks.
I found this challenging, so posted an extract from my 1979 diary when the almost Saint, Pope John Paul II came on a historic visit to Dublin.
Thank you for this prompt; its given me an opportunity to remember somebody I'd forgotten.
fun one.well done.
Is there any chance of you deleting No.18, Willow? The url leads back to Magpie rather than my blog.
Tess can you remove the Rinkly (corrected) that was an error on my part...bkm
This was challenging! Tried a new form with this one-a rispetto.http://lolamousedroppings.blogspot.com/2011/05/unsaintly.html
So, I'm sitting here for a couple of hours wondering why my name doesn't appear on the list. Seems I forgot to click the send-thing.This seems to be a confusing day in the blogosphere.— KKay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel
Nope, I was wrong. I just didn't see my own name. Definitely one of those days.Sorry, Tess.— K
This photo got me thinking about the symbols that people become and how they can be twisted and misused--I ended up a long way from St Francis, so no offense is meant.
Those pesky journalists come into play this week.
Poignant photo, Tess. xxxj
Well I straddled the garden fence between the light and the dark in my poem for this prompt ---nothing new. Thanks Tess.
Really drawn to this one..what a surprise!!
Okay, think I removed all the faulty links. Everything looks good to go. Will slowly be making the rounds this week. Looking forward to your offerings this week.
Thanks again for hosting this. Mine's up, and linked.
I imagined writing something inspirational: Instead I came away somewhat less than hopeful... Rick
Mine is far less than . . . any thing.
First time for me here, just gave it a try, a newbie. thanks.:)
As Pee Wee Herman would say, "Hmmm, birdy!"
This picture should give rise to some heartfelt responses.
Slightly irreverent, but simply could not resist playing around with the proverb...
At the moment nothing's coming except an idea for a painting, but we'll see.
It was the deformed haircut that inspired me.
Never telling where one of your prompts will lead me. Or others that play here.
Thanks, Tess. Trying my first Magpie!
I shall be interested to see what others have written . . .
Our Animal Cousins will love this!
Slightly cheating because this isn't new, but the picture suggests gothic horror to me (because I am me) so I'm going to cheat anyway ! :)
Thanks for the prompt; I went all literal on this one.
amen to spring at last!!!
Hi, I'm new...but I was definitely inspired by the pic! Can't wait for more!
Thanks for the prompt Tess - it certainly aroused memories in me!Anna :o]
Everyone's comments above are quite intriguing :)So much Gothic referencing - and ironically, Dragonwyck by Anya Seton has been playing on tv in the background as I link this to you. Can't get more Goth than that :)Mine is a re-post in a way, but you'll see why.Glad Ruthie has joined in! xx
Ooo I really like this one! Thanks for the prompt Tess!
Beautiful Tess...this evokes something I am struggling with...
My post is up! :)
The sad saga continues . .
Hello again, after a year's absence. Glad I dropped by, since this prompt led to a poem that really matters to me--and to a friend who lost her father just last night.
I thought long and hard before posting today because it's a true story which some may find difficult to believe. Thank you for this prompt.
Tess,This one I accepted with gratitude, it rising despite the encumbrances of a 'bureaucratic week from hell'.Trulyfool
After Blogger wiped me out, I have returned anew!
A beautiful and thought provoking prompt Tess....love it! :-)
Seriously had to think about what I wanted to write about this! Finally after much thinking and thought and those unsaintly afterthoughts (no guilt here!) about it; scrambling my brain. Why did I work up a sweat when St. Francis seem never to fuss? Fuss-less Saints I like! And then his saintly "laissex-faire hippy of his day" 1200 long time ago! Yes, thanks to St. Francis I think I actually like the way it turned out! "Make me a Channel of Your Peace" was his not mine! Ok?
