Magpie Tales ~ Mermaids in Sweaters!!!



The prompt this week is quite the challenge!  Here is the pic...



Now is that interesting or what!!!  The Mag has a sense of humor this week!  Here is what I did with the pic......



Now...what to say?   Hmmmmm.....




Mermaids in Sweaters

Tarry not....
sweet child of the sea.
Always be wary;
be ready to flee!!

Tarry not....
sweet child of the sea.
Running on empty;
I will let you be!

Tarry not....
sweet child of the sea.
Chilled and icy;
covered to the knee!

Tarry not....
sweet child of the sea.
Now warm and cozy;
how can it be?

Tarry not.....
sweet child of the sea.
Rest for a while;
I beg you, be free!!

  1. I didn't notice it until you pointed it out, but this would make a cozy sweater for a mermaid. What you did with the colors made it even more so. Fun take on the Mad Magpie.

  12. You're right...It's the perfect outfit for a child of the sea. Good eye! But then, of course, you're an artist!
