Magpie Tales Photo Prompt Eight







spring to life 



a painted egg
in my hand 
springs to life: 

the scene 

and the 
unseen.

  10. You've got me thinking about the dual nature of the egg, a home, a hiding place, a protection, an incubator, sustenance, source of strength and vitality...painted images have many of the same qualities...a place to rest the eye, a dwelling for the mind, sustenance for the soul....deep thoughts/few words...very nice!
