Hello Sunday Muse folk! Fireblossom here with your weekly picture prompt. This week I've selected a bottle tree. In old southern tradition, hanging bottles from a tree is intended to catch or confuse negative spirits. They are said either to be caught inside the bottles and live there, or if blue bottles are used, these confuse the spirits into thinking it is water where they'll drown or sky where they'll lose their way. No matter which, bottle trees protect the person living there from negative influences.
Of course, we like things loosey goosey around here, and you are free to write anything that the image brings to mind--it doesn't have to have anything to do with what I've described above. So go and capture something poetic, then link, visit, have fun!
