Magpie Tales ~ Ashes to ashes!



Happy New Year!  Unbelievable!!  Soon it will be 2013 and we start this all over again.  And the Mag starts us off with a new challenge.  The picture she chose is....



I altered it a bit....



Ashes to Ashes

Dust to dust;
running a game,
taking a gamble.
Addicted!

Ashes to ashes;
dust to dust;
clouds in the sky,
smoke in your eye.
Addicted!

Ashes to ashes;
dust to dust.
Children desire;
generational curse,
Addicted!

Ashes to ashes;
dust to dust.
Chained;
Choked,
Addicted!

It was Just a Little Town




"It was Just a Little Town"

There was a little town nearby;
it was close to nowhere,
and next to nothing.
I could just cry.

A place with wind and rain;
clouds and sky!
A place where people
live and die.

I used to live in that little town.
It was near to my heart;
 close to my wildest dreams.
Clouding my thoughts.

A place with friends and enemies;
and close blood ties!
A place to grow\
and reach the sky.

We all lived in just such a town.
It bordered timelessness;
 nearer hopelessness.
It broke my heart.

A place with wind and rain;
clouds and sky!
A place to live,
before we die.

Magpie Tales ~



The prompt for today is more difficult than it appears...at least I think so.  I could go in so many directions.
Here is the photo...

Do I discuss the car, the wet road, the field?  So many choices...I love the challenge!  Here is my take on the photo.....




Reflections in time

Wandering on this road called life,
moving from side to side.
Crowds gather.
shouts of dismay
ashes at our feet.

Wandering on this road called life,
following all the signs.
Some say right,
some left
some chose no direction at all.

Wandering on this road called life,
rains wash our faces clean,
stones break
gulley's form;
plans harden like mud.

Wandering on this road called life,
seconds ticking away.
clocks stand still,
children die
parents cry
nations profess confusion.

 Wandering on this road called life,
broken deep within.
 secrets whispered in the dark,
whistling in the wind
 tunes of silent men
rumble in our heads.

Colors

artist unknown to me


Colors

Today I put some color on my canvas.
Yesterday the color turned red.
I listened to the news
and was filled with dread!

Today I put some color on my canvas.
Yesterday the color turned black.
I saw the images
and was taken aback.

Today I put some color on my canvas.
Yesterday the color dripped.
I saw their faces
and felt my heart rip.

Today I put some color on my canvas.
Yesterday the color cried.
There is no explanation.
I wanted to hide.

Today I put some color on my canvas.
Yesterday the color was red.
They were all shot!
They are all dead! 

Today we are on our knees;
no words come out of our mouths.
We cry
We gnash our teeth
We no longer ask
WHY?

What will be tomorrow?

Magpie Tales ~



The challenge prompt this week is for sure, challenging!  Here is the image...

Now that is a tattoo!!   Here is my take on this image...





A gentle carass

She lay there,
softly, her breath sounds.
Sheets barely covering;
exposed.

She lay there,
a smile on her lips.
Sheets rising and falling;
content.

She lay there,
her ink showing.
Sheets accenting the curves;
desire.

She lay there,
following the outline.
The lines in black;
sensual.

She lay there,
as I reach for her.
Tracing the outline;
remembering.
'
She lay there,
I sit next to her.
Enjoying her presence;
craving!

Magpie Tales ~



We have a wonderful challenge this week.  A pic of a sculpture by Man Ray...

object to be destroyed


Here is my take on it...




What she said


When she told me
love neverending
forever
She smiled!

When she told me
friends forever
complete
She smiled!

When she told me
hold me tight
forever
She smiled!

When she told me
she was leaving
goodbye
She smiled!

When she told me
I see her eyes
no tears
She smiled!
