Magpie Tales ~ Blowing in the Wind!!!

What a beautiful art piece for our inspiration...given to us from Tess over at The Mag 169!  Here is the wonderful painting...

Lighthouse Dandelions by Jamie Wyeth

Of course I had to play with it...sorry Mr. Wyeth...just so much to work with here.  Beautiful painting!
Here is my take on it...

Blowing in  the Wind

She sat in the window
sensing the change
 blowing in the wind
enfolding her life.

She sat in the window
watching the dandelions
releasing their seed
flowing o'er the field.

She sat in the window
knowing her security
was yet again,
leaving her

She sat in the window
listening to whispers
filling her mind

She sat in the window
shivering at the memory
of him leaving her side
for the last time.

She sat in the wimdow
alone yet again
watching the dandelions
floating in the wind.

She sat in the window
sat there till the drug took hold

A note sat on the desk by the door.....folded,  "I have been here before.  The noise is just too much.  There  is nothing to forgive...just leaving."   

Make sure and visit The Mag!  Many talented writers sharing their visions.

Have a magical and blessed day!

  1. Oh wow this is absolutely shattering, really rips my insides to shreds, beautifully expressed and painfully realistic

  2. eep! what a closure on this...she could not take life without him...your remake of the pic makes it look like mountains...

  3. Poignant and beautifully written...

  4. ..arrg..drugs --- not an easy one to handle... smiles...

  5. That looks like a very modern piece of stained glass. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who gets turned on by playing with the picture before any words get involved...
