Magpie Tales The Red Chair


Please visualize a red chair
in front of a deconstructed window
inside a ramshackle old building 
Until Google decides to fix it's glitch
I am unable to post any images.
Grr. Thanks for your patience.
Since I have none.**
**at long last I have figured out
 a sneaky work around so here's the image ....ta dah!
~~~~~~~~

I sit here 
In a red rage unable 
To communicate

~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is my favorite hour
One to relish and enjoy
Watching the power
Of the gently setting sun

~~~~~~~~~~

to actually see the red chair and read others posts
please go to Tess Kiincaid's Magpie Tales here:

Words that express exactly how you feel. The best form of poetry.

Sorry about the glitch but I can still see red ;).

'in a red rage'...I've been there.

Google plagues me too. You are not alone. I have updated to Chrome and flip back and forth. When one is not cooperating the other sometimes feels sorry for me and works.

Blogger produces many red rages every day, I bet!

I'm sorry about the glitch, but I get your fury through your writing!

As i have said since the late 1970s, to err is human, but to really fowl things up requires technology.

Excellent take on the subject.

I am sorry the picture did not come through for you Kathe. Such mess ups are very annoying. But you came through with your Snappy Repartee and saved the day! Brilliant. Thank you for sharing this. =D

Lovely poem, Kathe. Google can be a right royal pain in the arse - I was unable to post comments for 2 days a few weeks ago! It's very frustrating. Hope all's well soon...X

Surely it's a rage maker. So far, I'm not having that problem, but I do know how quickly it can appear and how long it takes for 'repair'. The sunset is so renewing.
