Excited to be writing my first Magpie Tale!
Welcome Magpie, Kathy!
This one squeezed me... thanks.
Love this one.Anna :o]
Could not resist Tess!
Thanks for this! Have a blessed week ahead my blog friends...JJRod'z
could not help trying, linked in one.
Not accustomed to writing about snakes...well the reptile variety, but I gave it a whirl
Wrote two, posted only one. Probably the wrong one! :)
Rick, please feel free to post both!
Amazing photo image! Looks to be somewhat mysterious,somewhat covering up. A measure of a good artist! Very good choice!Hank
I love the work of Henri Rousseau. Didn't make the task any easier though.
Positively giddy with the prospect of Rousseau as inspiration.
Gave it a bash.... Love what I've read! :) xx
Another fairy tale with a moral, which you'll have to work out for yourselves.
Nice and creepy!
Ah the jungle. I did not see the Snake Charmer. Only the jungle, and no jungle has been crueler to men than the jungles in Vietnam. So, where there is beauty ... so there is something deadly.
thanks for the prompt!
This was a tough one for me, but something came out. Very challenging prompt, Tess. Thank you!
Thanks for testing our flex...walk a few footstepsin their land-on their sand...
Thanks for the enticement, loved it, as usual!
Thanks for the prompt - right where I am at today.
i amin...be getting around to reading here in just a bit...

I tried to do this one in a light vein, but it didn't happen... Thanks for hosting!
Interesting prompt - quite surreal ...
Great choice of prompt pic, found it a bit challenging, but got there (eventually!) and with no hissssy fits, either!!
Another newbie from the same troupe as Kathy B. Hope you like it.
i'm up and running, and on my way around the links.nice prompt!
Kind of a different take on this one... and my first attempt at the form Sestina. I'm planning on you all letting me know how I did with the form.
With my wonderful daughter-in-law graduating from college, my in-laws visiting, and my wife Kathy returning from her trip to Ohio to see her parents -- I am way late with this offering this week... :-|
Snakes sent me off course...
Finally I wrote something! Thanks for the prompt!
Struggled with this, but am quite proud to have used the words Gilgamesh, harlot and suffragette in the same poem! *big grin* Thank you for a beautiful prompt!
Tried my hand at a magpie tale after a long time.
great image- took me awhile to ponder and thanks for the challenge Tess!
Thanks! I'm new to this site and can't wait to see each challenge!
Welcome to Magpie, Mary Ann!
I think I did this kind of backwards. Started the blog then found the image. But then of course the image informed what I wrote next,sooooo. Lovely shot and fun idea....
After much angst (my horrow of snakes!) 'The Sapera' is up.
I did not write on this one because I've been obsessed on the picture wondering why it looked so familiar and I just figured it out - I gave a gorgeous old edition of the book Green Mansions to a friend for his birthday just 3 weeks ago - and this is the cover. (proof!: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/green-mansions-w-h-hudson/1100059578)
Thanks for the prompt...
Was late for step 3, but did it anyway. My first time. I look forward to more.
