I caught this at the right time and the words came. Love when that happens.
In early this week, for a change :)
What goes on here is truly addictive. I can't help myself.
How timely...I'm watching our first "real" snowfall outside the window as we speak....
Hi Willow,I don't get any snow where I live so did a bit of imagining.I'm also working slowly through older magpie promts, so if anyone wants to visit and checkout some of the others I have posted they are more than welcome to pop over and leave a comment... I can put the kettle on...Thanks again for a wonderful prompt..
I woke up this morning to the first gentle snowflakes of the season. A lovely welcome to December.
Hi Willow,We also do not have snow. It would have been fun. From news reports apparently the snow came early this time. We could just use a lot of imaginations in our postings.
we had our first snow fall last week- so this post was very timely! Cheers and thanks Willow for this stellar photo! Is this just right out your front door?
Thanks, Tess, very appropriate since we are snow-bound here in Ireland at the moment and we dont normally get much snow.
So much snow here I'm snow-blind. Concentrated on the door. Thanks for another invigorating prompt.
Thanks for the lovely prompt!!Happy Magpie tales :)
i love these magpie prompts! but, i can't just look at a picture and make something up about them...they have to be a true story for me. i find that odd. and it has flurried at my house all morning too for the first time....ah pretty snow.
I tend to be taken away by too many distractions.Thank you for this reminder, to sit and write still.Cheers!
Winter has not arrived yet,or so some say, but it hassent ahead heralds of snowflakesto announce its intention.I posted my poem beforeI finished the audio mp3.Tess has infected we magpieswith the need to hear thepoetics, to give it voice,to tease the air with theauthor's own intonationsand rumble.
I think any credibility I may have had just flew out the window. LOL.Can't wait to see what others came up with.
I'm attempting to step out in style - or in, come to think of it!
It was really awesome to be prompted. Thanks!Don't really like the piece that churned out but I'm glad to have been given the impetus to makes some words.
well what a coincidence...and i am actually in early...
Lovely photo - thanks Willow!
The picture just happened to remind me of a very old poem I wrote, so I dusted off the snow and tears and posted it despite its faults. It's a very wintery poem, at least.
We just got done with an early snow and that is what I thought of.
Brrr...can't wait to get in!!
Lovely photograph, Willow.
have one in,Thanks for the inspirations.Cheers!
Hi Willow, I submitted my entry, but accidentally submitted another post, too. My official entry's #47, Back in Town. Please delete #46, I can't seem to delete it. Thanks!
Loving "winter" in North Carolina, but I know all about it as I hail from Northern Illinois and Northern Michigan where 12 inches of snow doesn't faze one! Although 1 inch of snow halts everything here in NC. I LOVE it. Thank you for this challenge!
Willow, i hope my imagination will work. I have sumbitted mine and it is dedicated to you. Thanks for the wonderful photo.
Yaaayy!! This week, I posted my poem early on! And this magpie, I am sure, has many many stories to offer! I am all set to read 'em!!! :)Happy Magpie-ing, y'all...
Another lovely prompt, thanks Willow. :)
Once again I gazed at the prompt and figured no way, but this morning a thought kept nagging at my brain.
Another wonderful image. Thanks for the jumpstart.
Reason, okay got ya covered! I deleted #46. :)
Arian, you are the best. I am quite honored your elegant piece is dedicated to me. Thank you, dear friend. xx
Another wonderful photo, thanks Tess.
This one had lots of meaning for me. Great photo prompt.
Tess,Winter images give me exercise, work me beyond my 'comfort zones', but I'm glad for the chance. This one birthed in due time.TFool
I'm in! It's like you handed me that one on a silver platter my friend. Thanks for the inspiration.
Loved this picture and the many stories it told...
Oops. I wrote my entry earlier today. Then forgot to enter it in the linky. Now here it is.
Hello guys! I did a short story this time. Its kind of dark, I can't seem to grow out of my fascination with it. I hope you will all give me feedback so I can improve myself. ;-)
The snowy steps bring back memories.
This was a fun wintery magpie! I haven't posted in awhile...really have been ill...two weeks with a three day stint in the hospital, then a bout with kidney stones. Not liking growing older! Now my desk top totally died, beyond salvation - like its owner!!
Although we do not have snow yet,it was the cold and stones which grabbed me !and entrances- being allowed back in !Happy Magpie- thanks.
Loved this prompt Willow. I want to live in that cottage.
'Welcome to the hearth'...a poem about how social media has transformed many of our lives....
oh i was just wondering when we might get our first snow fall on this side...
a little something to follow along from last week...:)
For me, this picture brought out thoughts of the snow and what it does to home-bound people. I really don't know why. Thanks for the beautiful picWysteria
A late entry, Willow!Cheers!
This late thing is becoming a habit.
A snow post!! I have used your picture to tell my tale because it is just so apt for my piece about an unexpected visitor on my snowy doorstep - Terresa!! :)
Not quite sure if my little poem is quite done, but my brain turned in a funny direction this evening with the prompt.
I didn't think I was going to post this week, but I was reminded of a tiny piece of flash from a year or so ago that is more in fitting with the current weather than with the image.Thankfully I live in permanent sunshine so don't need to experience the winter any more, but there are many who do, and without the comfort of a warm fire to return home to every night.But for the fickle winds of fate, though...
my cottage door is open.
My piece is finally written and posted. Funny how nothing comes to one for days and then it's there, in a flash. Whether it's good or not is something else!
nice start to woolly sock time!! Thanks for the inspiration!
Thank you again Willow for the opportunity to stretch myself. Funny how a visual picture can become a magic wand of creativity. This answers my question. I am very visually motivated.
For this week's beautiful image, I sipped some hot cider and remembered a best friend.
sudden inspiration at 2 thirty - here it is finally.
I can't say much about the snow, but....:))
A tad late, I know, but I have put a response in place. Great prompt.
I will be late to my own funeral....happy Monday everyone! :-)
In the nick of time......! Glad to see I'm not the only straggler....!
It is cold and snowing in Kentucky. Loving your prompts.QMM
I'm super late for this post!! it has been a crazy week. I am a little sentimental due to the holidays..
