For Magpie Tales #101

Tess Kincaid offers the following image for writers' prompt:



contemporary linking
fronts the muslin wrinkling
black and white alone, flesh
out the dulcet tawny tones
of an artful curve of thinking
the give and take of bending
while the sun sets on the west

I'm with Susan... 'an artful curve of thinking...'

That's just... good.

Dear Tumblewords
I find the words The sun sets on the west most intriguin and wonder what you meant.

Yep, definitely an artful curve. Excellent.

I liked the very artful rhythm in this.

Almost sounds like a children' verse. Well, not the illustration.

Summer Rain said...

awesome description,
black and white,
together they shine bright.

Dear TW: A very fine critique on a very fine art piece. Like how you focused on the fabric of life and the east meets west sunset. Unique and thoughtful~!

this is great, you wrote about the negative space!!! too cool.

i even spliced some of the pic out of my blog because there was too much of that negative space that i didn't want in the picture.
