We’ve had our setbacks, our ups-and-downs, but here we are entering December of 2017.

Three Line Thursday remains a lovely addition to the blog here at Ink In Thirds. I would like to encourage you to spread the word and enter weekly. I will be including some of the poems from the weekly contributions in upcoming issues of Ink In Thirds Magazine, so if you’d like a chance to be published: participate weekly. Also, if you have a Twitter handle include it below your submission.

Happy writing!

If you don’t know what #TLT is all about here are the cliff notes:

  • Write something that will move us! Inspired by the photo above.
  • DO NOT include the prompt word.
  • Brevity is key.
  • What can you say, convey, express in only three lines? Can you paint a visual picture with only words? Tell an entire story that begs to be read? Use your imagination.
  • No titles. Let’s keep it about the words.
  • 10 words max per line. 3 lines.
  • Post your poem in the comments and comment on others. Have fun!

This week’s prompt: Light

Love and Ink,

  1. December, dark season this far North,
    Electric bulbs on thin cords dispel the darkness,
    but this year Nature/man intervene, cutting the flow. Darkness returns.

  2. I just want to say out of topic entirely that besides being so happy InkInThirds and TLT are back, it is so wonderful to see familiar faces and the chance to get to read you guys again. 😊😘❤️

  3. Turning inward – the days falter, darkness falls.
    Dreaming of spring, of warmth on my face,
    I pray to sleep.

    Grace – I am so glad to see that you are back – much love to you. xx

  4. Oh heck, I included the Prompt word. Soz. (Just so excited that Three Line Thursday is back. Woo-woo!) Take Two…

    Artificial and awkward, fragile and unnatural,
    but see how their radiance
    dispels the world’s darkness.
