Magpie Tales ~ Vanishing Dreams!

Tess posted such an intriguing image this week; I just couldn't resist!!!  Visit The Mag and see the other wondrous works of prose and poetry!!

Here is the image she posted.....

Here is what this image inspired in me.....

Vanishing Dreams

The center of your heart;
Your core of being

Ripped from her heart!
"Property of the Bank!"
Clothes in a bag!

Possessions vanished
Money gone;
Wandering freeways
Losing all sense of belonging!
 And The
Car just floated away!!

Have a centered and completed day!
Hugging you

Magpie Tales ~ The Rape!

The image offered this week by Tess over at The Mag is awesome.  Quite a statement is made.  The original image is....

Supermoon 2013, Julio Cortez, AP

Powerful, yes?  This is my take on it...

The Ravishment of the Lady

The skies were so blue
not a cloud could be seen
a blur in the horizon

The skies were so blue
not a cloud could be seen
smoke rising
A shape in the distance

The skies were so blue
not a cloud could  be seen
Black Smoke
A scream!
Sides split open!

The skies were so blue
not a cloud could be seen
Fire erupts!

The skies turned black
not a cloud could be seen
Bricks tumble
Smoke all around

The skies are gray
The sound is deafening
 Smoke clogs the lungs
Debris is raining from the skies

The skies
The sounds
The smells
The smoke

Have a thoughtful and purposeful day!
Hugging you

Magpie Tales ~ Shoes holding Back the Future!

Wonderful image provided by Tess, at The Mag this past weekend.  I could have gone in so many directions.  So many choices; so little time.  Ha!

Here is the image provided....

Isn't gorgeous?  I "old world" traditional.  But I couldn't leave it alone.  I kept pushing it...going in another is my take...

Shoes holding Back the Future

She wandered the fields,
feet shod with her past;
her head in the future...
which was unfamiliar to her;

She wandered the fields,
shouldering a heavy load;
weighing her down;
imprisoning her life....
in the future.

She wandered the fields,
steps unsteady;
seeing with her eyes;
stones with windows....
glistening in the sun.

She wandered the fields,
shadowing her vision;
clouding her mind;
ideas so foreign...
with sweat on her brow.

She wandered the fields,
while food for the village;
sat around her shoulders;
shaking the visions,
out of her mind.

She wandered no more;
clear of the future
confident in her past
striding with purpose.....
hearing those familiar voices;
she smiled!

Have a familiar, yet adventurous day!
Hugging you
