TLT Throwback – Year 2: Five

May your life have poetry and your poetry, life…

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: Fly Free

  1. Look; someone’s going somewhere in a great, big jet.
    I think of the noise, the discomfort, the secret fear
    then spot a leaf in the grass – such colours.

    1. I wonder who thought up that collective word for crows? It always catches me off guard when I hear it. Nevertheless, it’s (as always) a cleverly crafted poem.


    1. Ooh that’s lovely, Firdaus. I’m feeling the mixture of nervousness and excitement in my stomach and the little poem launches itself into the unknown.

  2. First time here; I followed De’s trail of crumbs.

    I saw it, that thunder in your face,
    Time to leave, and believe, I’d cut the chain,
    But I fell. Not for you but like rain.
