The Mag - 151

Welcome to Magpie Tales

Where Tess Kincaid serves a photo prompt and we respond.

The Mag

 From the sunny side of life despite her woes, she sits and this is her story.

Image by Tess Kincaid


If only this woolen garb reached her toes,
and running barefoot
wasn't her style, she'd be in shoes.
Affording herself a lateral view,
of frost mushrooming
inside these windows, 
 nipplacious-ness and her worry deepening

Should she dance the funky chicken? 
Sip warmed wine or let her thoughts
fester until all hope deflates,
nose-sicles and frozen toes?

IPhone-less, but google smart, she nourishes the interstate of her mind,
with reflection and radiating along a tree-lined
soul, ever churning and yearning.

Her breath bellows a frothy plume
  she draws in tightly 
infused by
warmth.   Hole enough for one straw, she takes another sip,
feeling deliciously alive while basking willfully.

Funny, cool and magical. Delicious poem.

Susan Anderson said...

Gotta love this one.

And its nipplacious-ness.

What a strange girl, I can already imagine a boy presenting her to his parents like this. Would be funny.

Delightful word-smithing!

Now who in the heck would even think of an idea to make this bodyware? It's like a sweater, or is it a sweater 10x too big and one arm is on the head, while the other covers the body and feet. It looks like she's holding her cup in what would be the opening for the head... interesting but don't try this at home type of an idea, especially if you're alone! Can you only imagine having to get up quickly, you'd have to hop to where it is you'd want to be and hopefully there's a warning label... do not consume bran 48 hours before wearing this! lol

Oh don't we know nose-sicles all too well living on this side of the world... all too well.

I find your writing interesting, sometimes I have to read it a few times to get it, but then I may only think that I've gotten it and our 'its' could be two different things and I may be entirely missing your message; but it's all in good fun. Now if you followed that you're good! lol

Have a wonderful week Karen.

smiles.. Google smart, maybe... chicken dance definitely.

Darlin- I know! I follow your thinking 100%

21 Wits said...

Filip and Kristel- I would like to see that too!

Little Nell said...

Gorgeousness of words Karen. I started to shiver as soon as you mentioned frosty windows. That should be mulled wine she is drinking I think - but will that help her nipplaciousness?

Kat Mortensen said...

I should love to see the Funky Chicken in this get-up! Great work, Karen!

izzy said...

Nipplaciousness! I just noticed how large the 'sleeve' around her hand
was ! Hmm, more wordy ponderings!
Fun thanks-

Berowne said...

You're right; nose-sickles, they're the worst.

The Write Girl said...

A very refreshing and youthful poem.

Dave King said...

You killed me with this one!

nipplacious-ness could have done it, all by itself!

Silent Otto said...

More twists and rurns than a Wilvur Smith thriller !, i thoroughly enjoyed it

Yvonne Osborne said...

Great word play.....frost mushrooming! Love it.
