because, i believe in chaos....
Your Magpie is a great interpretation of Willow's photo ... love that third stanza!
oh yeah...of a heart the same...i dig it...nice mag...personally i am a black & white kinda man myself..
Very well done, the black on black is something after my heart! As always, your word weaving is stellar and makes me strive to perfect my own. Thanks for sharing!
the many shades of black are wonderful to engage... as you have...
"especially worn or shed by a heart of same" Lovely, just great word choices. I also like "never considered an afterthought". Just great work!
So well worded. I too like black on black..singing soprano
Happy New Year I enjoy reading your posts ,its like each word is felt within ,very amazing feeling http://soulwanderingsoul.blogspot.com/
as always I enjoy reading your work! Well done!
There is something about the color black--if it is a color... I once read that people who wear it are trying to efface themselves, and I thought it was a totally stupid analysis. Black is so much more than that...loved your magpie, bkm.
Especially when worn or shedby a heart of same...Great lines. Wonderfully crafted. The magpies are so varied this week!
Awesome metaphore you've created here, Barbara.You are so good I always find it hard to make a comment.... I mean- what else can I say?You've said it all, especially in that last stanza OMGhey- hugs and Happy New Year;)
Barbara,The tone of this holds well -- you have that talent, I think, always. The 'blackness' of this goes beyond 'color', but into personal mood or outlook. And the sharing (if that's not an irony) between those of a kind.Good one!Trulyfool
Great poem! Happy 365th day.
Excellent poem. I enjoyed it.
I am most times in the black on black mode, breaking into color on random occasions. I loved this.
Black is always my color of choice. Love the third stanza - it could be a poem in and of itself. Great work.
Black? Needs white to balance...Without contrast, what is left?
fun tale, black and black, two of one kind.love your brilliant mind.happy 2011.

"two of a kind, youand me black on black..."Oh, how romantic!
