The photo above comes from "willow" who is posting photographs each week on her blog and encouraging anyone to write a short story or poem about it. Her blog is "magpie tales", and it's listed on my blog list below my profile. You will find links to other writers and bloggers there, and will no doubt find some wonderful writing, art and photography for your enjoyment. Below is my small contribution of poetry for her photograph.
