  5. I loved this prompt - put me in mind of my birthstone, so I took things from there. Probably not my best but done in under 10 mins - which is a record for me!!

  6. Okay, you've GOTTA believe this, Tess! I had just written a poem today WITHOUT seeing today's Mag...and a coupla hours later, when I did indeed see the Magpie, I was STUNNED! It's as if either you or I (or both of us) had some telepathic communication.. heheh
    Thanks for this image, girl!

  18. I don't know why my avatar didn't show up, but I'm truly on Blogspot! Anyway, thanks again for this wonderful submission. So many great poets here, and I'm enjoying every read. Some are just brilliant!
    There are a few, though, I keep encountering who are using this prompt just to bring others to their sites without posting the offered 'Mag Tale' you give. How very rude of them, as you do such a lovely job. And I do so appreciate what you do. Have a great week, Tess!

  31. I've been having Blogger hassles with the links from and to this blog! The one at No. 92 works properly, as far as I can tell - maybe you could delete the other two, Tess?

  44. Well ... what can I say. I ran 'par accident' into your blog. And I thought ... this is something I would like to do.
    My name is Chevrefeuille and I am a haiku-poet from The Netherlands.
