The Condiment














Avoiding a curse is ritual.  Tossing salt over the shoulder.  It'll not happen, then, that bad dreams come at you.

And for positives, one looks in the mirror at moments of great confidence, perhaps after a day when separate compliments come:  You know so much. You're just so funny.

Not to mention a spark of a glance that under other conditions start long expeditions, find new continents.

So, to looking into that mirror for the Great One, the hero to take you on the journey into the possible, that you.
 
It's a finding that what's a prison of one's own limitations turns out to be a lucky number.

Pick the chair which makes you invulnerable to table whispers, sure that in the decorative tapers around, you're royal in the glint.

  2. Table whispers ... choosing the right chair. I must confess I never considered how important that might be! Liked your Magpie.

  4. Barbara,

    Tess always gives good images to play with, but my writing must wander in the wilderness for a while before it returns from some 'angle'.

    Thanks!
