  3. Be well soon Tess, thank you for your work even through illness. This was at first a bit difficult. However as I allowed it to unfold somehow the current election cycle influenced my words.

  5. Hi Tess and everyone...the painting was so appropriate this week - it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and my dear friend has just starting her fight this week. None of us are immune. I'm hope you get over your illness too:)

  6. I couldn't be too serious this week. It's a wonderful painting, full of possibilities, but there could only be one thing bothering this poor woman.

  16. The good doctor pays a house call and took me also in a different direction. I wrote one yesterday and pondered it all night and posted this morning.

  18. Wools! I'm up. This one wasn't as easy as I would have expected. But I'm there, huzzah!

  19. Ok, finally I'll play doctor too. I agree with Irish Gumbo though, this one wasn't easy!

  20. Ha! I looked at the prompt yesterday, but felt like that woman, so I put it off until today when I could chuckle over it ... no serious write, but it was fun. Thanks, Tess! Hope your cold is fading ...

  21. Hi Tess - I'm sorry I missed a couple of weeks - both times I had strong ideas of what to post, but time just ran away with itself (and me), and couldn't quite manage it.

    Anyway, enjoyed this one - something struck my eye, which I think you'll enjoy. Hope all is well. k.

  23. I decided to give this one a shot, concentrating mostly on that little smoking box on the floor. ;)

  24. Running short of time this week, more so than usual, so I took the rather predictable option...

    Thanks for hosting and the creative goad!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Am enjoying all these prompts! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Prose today. No poetry in this image for me.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Another great prompt Tess....hope you all have a wonderful week! :-)

  28. Running along behind, as usual. Multi-faceted prompt, thanks Tess.

  29. Lately Tess my muse has abandoned me... nothing resonates with my soul, no images spark or inspire, there is only a quiet apathy and mild confusion. So I withdraw and seek solace, look for something to move me -- in truth, look for nothing, hoping in the not looking, I can find...

  30. I'm a bit late too. The need for sleep sometimes overtakes everything else...

    ...but love the prompt!

    Anna :o]

  31. Thanks again for the brain freeze and subsequent fretting. But I think I finally found a version I like well enough. :) I'll be back later tonight to read the rest.

  32. I'm late because I'm sick! But I did not write about my illness!

  33. Place your hand on my sweaty brow
    Full of fever that burns deeper than your hand can touch.
    Look at my scarlet skin
    A red that screams louder than a stop light
    Listen to my chest while I breathe
    Hear the struggle that’s happening inside me
    Let the aroma of my medicine flood your mind
    The smell of my pain overwhelms my cure
    Please, Please taste my lips with yours
    We both know that’s what I need to be better.
