MAGPIE/ Prompt #46

                                                     photo/ willow/ magpie tales


NAUGHTY

Is an embrace with
a leather glove the same as
a bare hand caress?



MURDER

Baby lambskin glove
hides the hand that commits a
perfect bloody crime.

kathew said...

these are great!

Reflections said...

deep thoughts tenderly engulfing the hand... sleek dark leather, the murderer holding its inner secret.

It never ceases to amaze me how you come up with so many inventive and creative ways to address the magpie/prompt. The second poem was a beauty both for content and brevity.

Merry Christmas (belatedly, I know) and Happy New Year to you and your family.

Greetings from London.

It's really a twist. A beautiful leather piece was only made possible through blood. Fascinating!

Lyn said...

Hi Everyday Goddess-
Thanks so much for your kind comments!

Lyn said...

Hi kathew-
Really appreciate hearing from you..Thanks!!

Lyn said...

Hi Reflections-
I'm so glad to hear your take..I realize there can be several ways to see this..thanks!

Lyn said...

Greetings to a Cuban-
Thank you..you know how it is with poetry..it just creeps up on us!!
Best wishes to you and yours!!

Lyn said...

Hi kaykuala-
So glad to see this through your eyes..I don't always know what I mean!! Thank you...

Sioux Roslawski said...

I love the contrast between the two pieces. Well done!

Berowne said...

Solid, compelling writing...

Tess Kincaid said...

Ooo..."Murder" is especially nice. Happy 2011 to you and yours, as well, Lyn! xx

Daigu said...

Poetry in the form of a question is interesting. Pablo Neruda worked on it at the end of his life, in Book of Questions. It doesn't force an answer in the reader but rather an image.

I like how you've focused on what's absent in the picture - the hand - in both poems. Invariable our minds will go that way, won't it?

Together your pieces create an interesting contrast between caress and violence. All the acts of the human hand.

These short poems speak a great deal.

Happy New Year, Lyn!

Lyn said...

Hi Berowne-
Really like the simplicity of your comments..thanks and Happy New Year!!

Lyn said...

Hi Tess-
I guess I'm on the side of the macabre..surprise! Thanks for untold opportunities, and the best to you and yours!!

Lyn said...

Hi Daigu-
I do use questions, even in prose..I really imagine that I'm starting a dialog and expect some sort of answer..
I did want to juggle the same words..haiku for my brain!!
Thanks, and the best New Year to you...

Lyn said...

Hi Sioux-
Welcome, and so glad that you enjoyed this!

Helen said...

Two haikus, both different and equally delightful.

Lyn said...

Hi Helen-
I had to stop myself from going on to more! Thank you..and Happy New Year!!

Words A Day said...

Deadly!

Happy New year to you!

Lyn said...

Hi Words a Day-
I like that!! Thank you..and a Happy New Year to you...

Windsmoke. said...

Two different Haiku that ask two different questions but they could have the same answer.

Lyn said...

Hi Windsmoke-
I love your response..I'm looking at it that way now..

madamebutterfly said...

They both sent shivers up my spine but for different reasons!

rel said...

Lynn,
Either, bare handed if you please.

Marilyn said...

Your haiku are wonderful, I especially like the first one.
So much can be hidden or hide behind a glove.

Lynne H. said...

Very creative and thought provoking.. well done!!!

Lyn said...

Hi madamebutterfly-
Highest praise..I strive to send shivers...thank you!!

Lyn said...

Hi rel-
I have cold hands..gloves...well, thanks, I guess..haha...

Lyn said...

Hi Marilyn-
Thanks so much for your comment..and I do agree about the hidden part..

Lyn said...

Hi Lynne-
Thanks..something about gloves..so many images come into view...

the 2nd one is haunting...

Lyn said...

Hi Jingle-
Thank you..I find that the short poems sort of condense all the energy..really like that..

Carrie Burtt said...

I love these Lyn....both take a completely different perspective of the gloves...brilliant! :-)
