now just where the heck did you spot this image?Thanks Willow for our weekly pleasure in writing and reading.
What great texture this photo has....I may work it another direction later on in the week (I'll share, if it comes to anything).Thanks, as always.- Dina
This wonderful patina is the old pipes from my patio faucet.
Love the photo! Love it! Love it! Willow, you have an eye for non-ordinary things those which artists need to create art. thank you!
Sorry; couldn't find much in Shakespeare for this one. :-)
Berowne . . . bearing in mind that a plumbing disaster seems imminent, how about (from King Lear) "Ye cataracts and hurricanoes spout!"
Colur and texture inspired me HERE
Willow, great image, but it prompted a 'darker' story in me this week.
Not a great effort of mine, I'm sorry to say.
It's just struck me - 'The Pipes, the pipes are calling!'

Magpie, I'm new to this blog but after watching my mom Carrie post on it I was inspired. Thanks for this, I'll be looking forward to writing!
My thinking is often non-linear, but I promise, my poem was inspired by this picture. Sings: would I lie to you....
This one prompted a different type of story . . for me, at least.
Just got home from work. I feel like these pipes look.

I saw what most likely will be a different 'take' on your photo.
I have had another attempt.
At first, I was worried that nothing would come, but when I got quiet, the words began to whisper.Elizabeth
I did what I've learned works for me. One opening sentence....then I'm off and running. But the pipes....sewer pipes by the look of them....well...talk about a problem!!
this photo is great.. a thought came immediately.. :) thanks Willow..
Terrific prompt, Willow!!!
Well, now that I've had my weekly meet-up with the people living in my head I can safely go to sleep.Thanks Willow for keeping me on my toes in unknown flight patterns.
Beautiful textures just begging for a story!
Up, and at it again! Thanks Willow, really good prompt.
Elizabeth, I had a similar experience. I was thinking, pipes?! Writing is so great that way. I think nothing is there. But I'm just not ready. When I quiet myself and open up, it's been right there all along.
How's your internal plumbing?
It took a long time for me to come with somethign and think it just too sad.
Nice picture -- I could have gone a number of ways with it.
Welcome to my first post on Magpie. I love this blog with all the inspirational pictures. Hope you will come by and visit my blog. ~Kristie
This one was hard for me, but thank you THANK YOU for doing Magpies!
Hi Willow - this is my first attempt on a magpie tale - quite exciting - and the pictures you choose each week are just fantastic!!
interesting prompt - amazing, the words your photos call forth!
Very intriguing prompt this week. Thank you for inspiring my writing, even though a little dark.
Hard to believe that I actually came up with something this week..phew!! Thanks, as always..
Forty-eight already? What a treat! Can't wait to read them all.
willow--thanks for the inspiration! best c
Thanks, as usual, for an excellent photo. It reminded me of the hundred-year-old house we once lived in, but that's not what I wrote about.
When were you in my basement, photographing my pipes?
I loved what was born from this image. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE it on so many levels. I carried it around with me all day yesterday... I don't think I wanted to let it go in order to write! Tee hee hee hee.... This week's Magpie Poem.
Oh my... oh my... this one was FUN! For the first time in decades I wrote a poem! A poem! Me! I'm such not a writer like most here, but I guess the talent pool here inspired me. That and Willows pic. Great shot Willow. Poetry in a flash... Thanks!
This was serendipity, I was already working on a piece that included the line "and I a conduit of worry" -- so when I finished it, I posted here......rob
This is a great picture. A wonderful challenge to write about!
I decided to do the tour this week and comment on everyone's take on the prompt.I'll be back next week!
There's a problem with Linky today. Got a message in to them! Hang tight.
mine posted it seemed to be fine...bkm
I FINALLY get a chance to use my true story about the plumber we had in SLC! Thank you!!!
I do as someone else mentioned. I just write a sentence and she what happens. Fun, fun, fun,QMM
I liked the image and had several different ideas. Took the shortest this time :)Citymom
I am truly and idiot girl in action, this is my first time doing this and my name seemed to have posted in the area of 5000 times. I need a "How to post a Magpie Tale for Idiots". Sorry about that... Nice site Willow, I had a good time trying to write something a little out of the norm for me.
What a great prompt, Willow! It made me think of old, dark things...sewers and tunnels and what could possibly be hidden inside.
Better late than never - I'm in.
back again...mine is up!
I'm ready, looking forward to seeing everyone else's now too.
Willow the Wisp--each week we receive a wisp of a topic, and LOOK what happens! But I like yours best Willow, even borrowed from it at the end of my entry this week. Mine is HERE
Got you fixed, Siren. No problem! Linky wasn't cooperating yesterday.
Thank you Willow you are awesome! :-)
Another Haiku this time again :-)Lovely prompt Willow. Thanks !
Hey, Willow! I just love these prompts - this 'rusty piping' took me back years - and not in a way you'd think! Gave me a wacky idea indeed for my poem! Keep them coming!
I really thought I was going to have to pass on this Magpie Tale, but I hated to bow out on just my second week. I'm glad I came up with something to post. Still fun!PG
Another great prompt. I am back for another week to try my hand at your inspirations.
