Mag 33

Somewhere along my blog wanderings, I came across Magpie Tales, a blog that hosts writing prompts & links.  This week's prompt is this picture of a popular, upscale Italian fragrance from the 1930's - if Google is correct:)  Gazing at this picture brought to mind the next image (also found in my wanderings from Magic Moonlight) & together they formed:

Drops on pulse points
Hint of cathedrals and wine
A sharpened gaze under a nightsky

If I peel mosaic layers
Will you see
beyond the moonsplash on the arches and stairs
Or will you see crumbled stone
Concrete blocks of bone
Will you see lips, eyes, flesh
An artist's brush and awl
Or will you hear the aria in my spiritsong

Will my banner of shimmery stars
and lightrays fly
or will you raise your own
overshadowing all 


  1. like an aria from an opera...beautifully written

  2. The photo you have paired with Willow's is perfection ... as is your Magpie.

  4. So much to think on in this beautiful poem...i love it! :-)

  5. oh this was excellent...cathedrals and wine...nice and the splash later on...tight write...nice magpie!
