Magpie Tales, Week 6


It's time again for Willow's Magpie Tales. Each week she posts a prompt around which a tale should be formed. Click the link above to see other offerings.




The sun wanders down the pavement
all southern & slow -
not a care in the world,
indifferent to any urgency
I may feel.
Deflated, like that damned tire,
I amble down the dappled street.
I think I'll have a mint julep
when I get home.

  2. I must remember to show this to my husband, Bug. He had a flat over the weekend and he'll particularly appreciate it.

    Very well done, and I do love pictures that inspire stories.

  3. Oh that lucky old sun got nothing to do but roll around heaven all day.
    No wonder you're feeling deflated. Clever!
