  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Is there any chance of you deleting No.18, Willow? The url leads back to Magpie rather than my blog.

  12. 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.

  13. Nope, I was wrong. I just didn't see my own name. Definitely one of those days.
    Sorry, Tess.

  14. 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.

  15. Those pesky journalists come into play this week.

  16. Well I straddled the garden fence between the light and the dark in my poem for this prompt ---nothing new. Thanks Tess.

  20. I imagined writing something inspirational: Instead I came away somewhat less than hopeful...

  21. Mine is far less than . . . any thing.

  22. First time for me here, just gave it a try, a newbie. thanks.:)

  23. This picture should give rise to some heartfelt responses.

  24. Slightly irreverent, but simply could not resist playing around with the proverb...

  25. At the moment nothing's coming except an idea for a painting, but we'll see.

  26. It was the deformed haircut that inspired me.

  27. Never telling where one of your prompts will lead me. Or others that play here.

  28. Thanks, Tess. Trying my first Magpie!

  30. Our Animal Cousins will love this!

  31. 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 ! :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks for the prompt; I went all literal on this one.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hi,

    I'm new...but I was definitely inspired by the pic! Can't wait for more!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks for the prompt Tess - it certainly aroused memories in me!

  35. 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

  36. Ooo I really like this one! Thanks for the prompt Tess!

  37. Beautiful Tess...this evokes something I am struggling with...

    ReplyDelete
  38. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  39. 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.

  40. Tess,

    This one I accepted with gratitude, it rising despite the encumbrances of a 'bureaucratic week from hell'.

  41. After Blogger wiped me out, I have returned anew!

  42. A beautiful and thought provoking prompt Tess....love it! :-)

  43. 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?
