Mag 163 and ONE A DAY #8

This week's poetry prompt from the Willow Manor is Degas' "Woman with a Towel"

The Poem a Day Challenge invites poets to produce a new work every day during April, so this is an offering for Day 8 also

She looks like she's given up hope
of finding her lost bar of soap.
"If on it I slip
 and go arse over tip
 I really would feel such a dope."

Woman With a Towel, 1898, Edgar Dega


  1. A witty and nimble way to start the week; thanks.

  2. I love this! You are a model of brevity. I know April is poetry month and I really need to try to write something for this amazing painting. Degas is a personal favorite.

  3. Did Tess scrape the bottom of the barrel to find this prompt? I think not...:)

  4. Which is why she needs soap on a rope!
    Hahaha - love this :o)

  5. No need to feel like a dope .. nope!!

  6. This put a big smile on my face nicely done!

  7. ...and wouldn't you be a gentleman and retrieve it for her?


Thank you for stopping by. To make life easier for you I have turned off the new indecipherable and time-wasting verification words. Would you care to "feedback" to Blogger and complain about them, like I did?
