What The Eyes See...

Rain on glass and drops on skin -
or outside a shower looking in?
Imagination could make this rude
if it decided to see a nude
torso captured in this shot.
Is it a body, or is it not?
Maybe its no more than fingers
behind a pane where rain still lingers...

Of course, it could be a shower of meteorites heading towards a dusty planet, but I leave that option to the star gazers amongst you, to interpret within their Magpie poem for Tess this week!

  1. We poets, honing and vignetting as if our place on the Linky List depended on it, face a real problem with this prompt. The picture is upside down.

    fruit too- Thanks for speculating!

  7. I started off wondering if it was a golf ball, or cheese, or (grim) condensation on an oxygen mask, but like most, we settle for the safety and promise of rain

  10. actually, I thought it was a thick glass ball, a bit greasy or dimpled maybe, with drops standing in the dimples.

    But there you are, these prompts have almost become a weekly riddle.
