This is the last week to pre-order my poetry chapbook, Patina, from Finishing Line Press. This will help me tremendously, since my pressrun is determined by advance sales. A huge thank you to all who have placed an order. Your kind support means so very much. You are the best. [Click here for the link to FLP]
That's pretty gross. LOL. I went funny. Hope you like it.ReplyDelete
Giggle...I know, it is really freaky. Looking forward to the results. Should be an interesting week!ReplyDelete
I hate Mr Linky. Forget the first attempt.ReplyDelete
No problem. I'll fix it. :)ReplyDelete
I know they're essential but . . . but . . . yuk!;-)ReplyDelete
Will your book be signed if we preorder it?ReplyDelete
I went for funny . . . and true.ReplyDelete
Eyeball...what can one possibly write about an eyeball? Lots and lots...eyeballs are so talkative!ReplyDelete
I wish to write for your magpie tales this week and I am already linking my first attempt here. Thank you for the photo prompt and have a nice day to all.(:
Tess, Sorry for the dupe...first attempt doesn't work. Fascinating photo...vbReplyDelete
Versebender: No worries...deleted the first one.
It should indeed be an interesting week. I have an odd relationship with my own peepers, having twice come all too close to losing their use.ReplyDelete
I've posted an existing piece for now but I think I may have a second one later in the week.
Gosh! Two weeks was a long time with no new Mag!! :) Thank goodness you're back Tess!!
I missed you last week and I am going to skip this one. Sorry but looking at the image makes me sick.ReplyDelete
Sorry about that Jacqui. It's a vintage glass eye I bought at the Scott Antique Fair in Columbus a few years ago. The vendor had a wooden case with narrow drawers filled with all sizes and colors. It was hard for me to choose just one. They really are amazing pieces of craftsmanship.ReplyDelete
What an interesting prompt. Tess I just received a great book that I think you would enjoy. I wrote about it on my blog. The post is called the ultimate writing tool. When you have time check it out. Congrats on Patina. I can't wait to get my copy. xoxReplyDelete
Great prompt, Tess. Just another 'quickie' from me this week, though.ReplyDelete
The eye, doppelganger,ReplyDelete
encased in glass, it parrots
and embraces pretense,
but sees nothing,
just like demagogues,
blind pirates, stone dogs,
and park statues,
but what it represents
is holy, spiritual, so very Zen
as swing open the doors of
perception, and use our vision
as best we can muster.
I too was unable to be serious. And thanks for your help with the image Tess.ReplyDelete
i love it!ReplyDelete
Is this the same eye from mag13?
Or maybe the other eye?
Thanks,Tess..it brought out something weird..what a surprise!!ReplyDelete
Very interesting choice this week.ReplyDelete
Well, I am a bit late. I am editing and posting my entire series of Raven & Wolf poems. Oddly enough this poem is called Yellow Eyes so it actually fit the prompt.ReplyDelete
Phil, it is, indeed, the same eye. I wondered if anyone would remember.ReplyDelete
Old Raven, no one is late! The prompt stays up and the linky open all week, so dive in, the water's fine.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Tess, that was a fun one, once I got over the shock of it.ReplyDelete
I put my two cents in. Now to go back and see what other people said.ReplyDelete
This image kind of creeped me out! I wrote just a little something for fun.ReplyDelete
Oh, I love it :)ReplyDelete
I had fun returning to Magpie #13 for 'the eye' poetry!ReplyDelete
It took me a while to get past the queasy feeling at seeing the disembodied eye; I knew I could not possibly deal with it --- but I did!ReplyDelete
I hope you don't mind though that I disguised the eye a bit by enlarging. Due to your great photography, the glass eye is too realistic to look at every time I view my blog ;)
Unexpected photo, but fascinating idea. I had fun with it, a short vignette today.ReplyDelete
Well,obviously, we have arrived a bit late for supper-time. Such a promising meal on display,too. Looking forward to breakfast however. Eager to try our hand.ReplyDelete
Great photo, just had time for a quick one this time, thanks Tess!ReplyDelete
Very inspirational - thanks Tess.ReplyDelete
hmm interesting theme..have to write one on it *smiles* :)ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see everyone!ReplyDelete
Here's lookin' at you, kid!ReplyDelete
Never really tried anything like this, but it was fun. Some great entries here to compete with, as well. Thank you for the opportunity. :)ReplyDelete
I wrote my newest thing, not a poem but a story in itself. A flash fiction I believe. It's at www.inkladendiary.blogspot.comReplyDelete
What an interesting prompt.ReplyDelete
Great having you back, Tess!
Strange One this week :)ReplyDelete
I played! I played! Now I'm going to go read what everyone came up with to see how many had the same idea as me.ReplyDelete
This is a truly disturbing photo and because this monologue has been on my mind since seeing it on Monday, I must be a slightly disturbed gal.
What an image!! Seriously.... TOOOOO GOOOD!!! :))ReplyDelete
Oh.. I played, alright!! hehhe
Thanks for the prompts, again. =)ReplyDelete
