Magpie 137

It Must Be Time For Lunch Now ~ Francesca Woodman 1979

Bending Forks 

understudy apprentice

wannabe illusionist

bending forks ~ impossible √† faire  

she keeps him sidetracked 
bending spoons

until the day he drops

and she takes his place on stage

a master's degree in 'sleight of hand'

  4. Oh, this girl in your poem has luck shining all over her fate. I love this journey you've designed, Helen. It has cunning edges...... or does it not? Beautifully crafted and imagined. Thank you for sharing. ♥

  5. Your poetry
    no slight of hand,
    but in demand
    by your
    readers.

    Your poetry,
    more trick of brain,
    "We'll not complain,"
    say your
    readers.

  6. I love this. I suspect this is no illusion. She's worked her own magic. Love what you did with the picture too. It works well with your words.

  12. LOVE "she keeps him sidetracked with forks"
    and that degree in (sleight of) hand. Excellent spill of words, and a fun take on the art piece.

  14. The understudy forever waiting in the wings longs for that call. He'd better watch out.....as usual, your imagination is a treasure.

  16. Love how the same prompt turns out different ideas and draws our eyes to different parts of the picture! So creative with the picture in picture, and bending forks!

  21. " do not try to bend the spoon, for that would be impossible, instead try only to realise the truth "
    "and what is that ?"
    "there is no spoon"
    From The Matrix
