    Reblogged this on Quillfyre and commented:
    Something about this image caught my fancy, and I respond here with Pas de Deux:

    Pas de Deux for High Wire

    Grey days Magda walks her crow along the wires,
    their lightning rod umbrellas raised against rain,
    each in sleek black dress. Crow hasn’t found
    right-size red shoes, tiptoes bare-clawed
    holding black string, the thing that
    keeps them grounded mid-air.

    It’s an odd tableau: Woman and Crow, a soggy circus
    in sky and air, a curious three-step on the wire:
    Shuffle, stop, hop, shuffle, stop, hop—
    ‘til rain stops the show.
    One, two three—
    Umbrellas up!
    And step off the wire.

    not sure if I did this correctly. I reblogged but also used the MisterLinky thing too…?

      Mister Linky is perfect XD.

      Generally people ping instead of reblogging though I don’t mind either way

      To ping you do something like
      Written for
      Then the link of the specific prompt you participated in

      It isn’t necessary to ping but it just draws my attention sooner

      Welcome to the prompt!

        Thanks for the welcome. I’ve been following since spotting the prompts on margo roby’s blog, although this is my first post.

    I’m not sure if I’ve ‘pinged’ correctly. I added the link via Mr Linky, but here is another just in case.

    Really love this photo!

    Just thought I’d stop by to play while listening to “Storybook Stories”…

    Her endless walks, up there high on a wire,
    Leads her friend gently through each storm,
    Did you hear all those songs they’ve sung together,
    Perhaps you heard every conversation they shared.

    There’s something about those many miles they’ve covered,
    What a wonderous two strangers sharing colours they’ve lived,
    Out beneath their black umbrella cover, her red shoes to lead their way,
    Out inside their hidden stories, painted black between highwire and storm.

    Stangers no more journeying wire, they know where their going,
    Friends with good hearts and their unwritten tales to share.

        Just got lost in some stories today, MLM, and reading tales inside illustrations, while thoughts, they float like paper boats and fly like kites between each kind of blue.
