  13. Love this one, thanks Tess. Dali is my favourite artist and I have visited his fisherman's cottage studio. The view from the window features in many of his paintings and I just know this one must have been painted there too, although I have never seen it before, the skyline is familiar.

  19. I love Dali's work. I'm pretty sure Voluptate Mors was one of the reasons why I like skulls and sexy things. Then again, what came first the chicken or the egg, right?

    Thanks for the prompt, dance is another one of my loves.

  21. Not a huge fan of his work, but my daughter who is a visual art student, loves him. I am sure this will bring out fantastical writing, though. Thanks, once again, for hosting Magpie Tales.

  27. I looked at this week's Magpie after I wrote The Birthday Party in the off chance the poem might fit the prompt. It's based on a dream I had last night which seemed to contain elements of an actual experience. Thanks Tess. Happy to return after a six month absence.
