Prompt from #Mindlovesmisery and #Tale Weaver at:

“Whether discovered as a child, with a child or otherwise, what is your favourite fairy tale? (Wikipedia’s List of Fairy Tales links are good memory-joggers.) Which character in that tale do you find the most interesting? Take on her/his personae, then weave a tale from that perspective. You can reweave the original fairy tale, or create a new one. Place your character in a familiar or unfamiliar setting.”

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Wonderful tale. I love the logic and reasoning behind (excuse the pun) the goose’s pain.
    My ping-backs don’t always work, either. So I’m glad you sent the url to your post.
    Thanks so much for playing in the Tale Weaver’s garden.

  2. does the goose have a broken wing? maybe it’s just resting? I don’t know. geese can be pretty feisty critters, especially if they’re hungry and they expect you to bring food to feed them!! 😉
