MAGPIE...Prompt #197


                                            "SEAGULLS" / The Guardian/ Eyewitness

THANK YOU, Tess...still aloft...Magpie Tales


PLUCK OFF

Part of me knows what's real,
pain lets me know.

If this plucking happens
when I'm awake,
my feathers pulled,
I will say stop.

Cry maybe bloody murder.

But in my comfort,
when a feather
is yanked from my wing,
in the midst of it,
I will fly.

Pain is a concept as yet
unborn in my dreams.

A hand reaches
like a shadow,

made of less than matter,
making mischief,
ruffling my feathers.

I'm bleeding
in a Hitchcock chiller,
no pain.

interesting...a bit surreal...pain reminds us at times we are alive...when we are up we dont notice it...when we are down we do...pain as the concept yet unborn...i will think on that one...

Lyn said...

Hi Brian-
I think I mean that pain is real in life, and a dream is a good movie! Thank you...

'Pain is a concept as yet
unborn in my dreams.' ~ here the advantage of dreams: we always can escape any suffering...but sometimes we just longing to find a new pain in real life...

Lyn said...

Hi humbird-
No thanks on new pain in this life...but thanks!!

Kathe W. said...

my oh my- quite a read! This is a bit like Hitchcock!

Lyn said...

Hi Kathe W.-
That's what I saw first...Hitchcock's The Birds....

Strummed Words said...

Sad birds,
hope they cry
no more...

Lyn said...

Hi Strummed Words-
Thanks...I'm with you!

I think you're right. You can imagine being in pain, but can't recreate the pain itself. It's a thing of experience, even when it's "false"

Kutamun said...

Theres a little bit of sociopath in all of us, Javier !
Bravo

Lyn said...

Hi barbara-y-
Good thing too, or we'd quit after the first twinge!! Thanks...

Lyn said...

Hi Kutamun-
Leave it to you, my friend, to come up with the Kutamun Variations!! I'll ponder...thanks..

Karen S. said...

Oh my, I'd run quickly if I ever bled any where near Hitchcock! Yikes just the thought of it! Your words bring out the strength that holds the wings of any bird UP! Bravo these feast of thoughts are just so fun with our theme this week!

dori said...

Wow! That one's going to take several readings to sink in to its fullest, and I have a feeling it's going to get better with each go round. Hitchcock's pain and the blood is black... Love this, intense!

Lyn said...

Hi Karen S.-
Always fun for me! That's all I seem to need...thank you.

Lyn said...

Hi dori-
Hasn't sunk in for me yet either! but that's how it goes with me..thanks so much!!

Katherine said...

In the words of Alice...curiouser & curiouser! I wish pain was unborn concept in my dreams. For me pain is even possible in my dreams. Sometimes my dreams can be so vivid that upon waking the emotion experienced in the dream can remain with me long after I wake. Particularly if any family members feature in my dreams. Your Mag got me thinking & I like that. Thanks! Kath

Lyn said...

Hi Katherine-
Thanks for the comment..agree, thinking is good! The things I say..not necessarily more than just words!!

Helen said...

Lyn said...

Hi Tess-

Carrie Van Horn said...

I'm sure you're right! Thank you...
