wow! the central image in the photo reminds me of the three lines in Yosa Buson's 'Four Seasons' poems:It penetrates into me;stepping on the comb of my gone wife,in the bedroom.Great Photo!
Thanks, Arian. I hope everyone enjoys this one. It's wide open for possibilities!
What is the brush resting on, willow? And what type of brush is it?
Ooh... definitely got something for this one... sort of.I still can't believe I had zilch for the pocket knife.
Aoife, it's whatever you see!
Glad to have another chance at a Magpie Tale.
This was an interesting one Willow. The idea though for what to write about hit me instantly!
Many possibilities. It's amazing how one simple shot can mean so many different things! Thank you.
I apologize for my ridiculous response to this prompt. It was late, I was tired, had a drink in hand....please forgive me.- Dina
Thought I would play along, as an idea struck me on seeing the pic.
This time I managed to play!
Nice picture! I enjoyed the memories this one brought back! Decided to try another week!
I make no excuses and have no explanation. It is what it is..and I'm as baffled as the next person.Thanks Willow, I think.
This is my first shot at a magpie tale... :P
I do not know who Sara is, and where this winter scene took place. I owe it all to the bristling toothbrush.Thank you Willow.
All done, another cheery tale! Thanks Willow!
Hi,I didn't have a story so I tapped out a short poem. Thanks for the challenge.
A toothbrush is so handy to have around. Got my tale up this week.
@Magpie Tales writers; feel a poem today!
I love this one!!
This one hit me with sadness for some reason. I love old things and tortoise shell toothbrushes are certainly old. Great photo, Willow.
edentulous Haiku. :)
here I am with another micro fiction. Thanks a lot from magpie Willow. Hope you like it. :-)http://everythingincoherrent.wordpress.com/2010/06/26/nowhere/
Hi I have a story on my blogthe link is:http://sortofwriting.blogspot.com/2010/06/magpie-tales-vol-20.htmlThanks for the challenge, I enjoyed it.
Wow, this one made my brain hurt...but it was fun! It is funny how a simple thing like pencils, or a toothbrush can bring forth so many cool ideas. Loved reading everyone's wonderful posts. Thank you Willow! :-)
very cool image Willow- once again!!!!
Something terrible has happened at the Bicker's house....
fresh off vacation...i am in the game...and willow, there is something about your prompts that bring out my dark side...smiles.
I love not knowing what I'll come up with!!
Willow: I posted my link twice. The first time around, there were some technical difficulties (I was posting from my laptop & something got really messed up with the link & post). Hopefully it won't happen again!
Hey, Terresa, no problem! I'll just delete the first one! :)
Just scraping in at the end of the week. 'Puter's been down so I'm operating from the local library. Hope to be back online tomorrow.
I'm up and ready.I'll be around to visit everyone soon!
Back from vacation - tale came to me righ away when I saw this. Will be spending some time today trying to catch up with the last 3 prompts - I've missed you all!
Screeching in at the last minute, my entry is here.
Took a while to get this one, but i like what came out of it. Thanks Willow, I'll check everyone out tomorrow.
I'm in. Enjoy!
Very interesting. I think we saw many different things.
A little 'Toothbrush Blues' from me... Thanks, Willow.
