Magpie Tales provided a picture prompt ~
the puzzled pieces
of Christchurch lie in ruins
six point three is dire
Sis/Few Miles also provided a picture prompt ~
I had a weird thought:
what if wings were a staircase
with cloud banisters?
Should one tap dance up;
slide down to the newel post
or just ponder flight?
and finally, Carry On Tuesday provided the word/quote prompt of, "Parting is such sweet sorrow..."

Shakespeare’s Editing Notes From Romeo and Juliet Act II, Scene 2 (as a Luc Bat)
Parting? Doth that be sweet?
Hmmm…How shalt one complete that line?
Who sayeth that? Define!!!???
to… Juliet! She’d beseech
Romeo to stay … Each goodbye
for young lovers? To die!
(This be the crux!) And I’ll direct
them to tragic effect.
Foreshadowing unchecked, barrow*
shalt they be to’morrow.
Ah! Parting is such sweet sorrow…
(*Note: barrow means a large pile of earth over an ancient grave where one or more people are buried.)
