The following is a piece I wrote in response to this Magpie Tales #19 visual prompt. More responses can be found here.
Sometimes the softest silk,
the smoothest grain,
hide danger, sharp,
compelling beyond trust.
Beware of costly knives
riddled with history.
Wise and witty! I like it a lot.
beware indeed! Nice Magpie good advice!
nice tight verse…yes like a rose there is danger in the beauty…nice magpie.
so true, how do we really know what those heirlooms have experienced?
The danger is so often hidden – nice post!
If only old knives could talk!
Great Magpie- I enjoyed this!
Beware! So true.
I love this! True on multiple levels.
Like how you used soft silk in contrast to the knife ….
