TLT Throwback – Year 2: Forty-two

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: Doll

  1. You remained behind, stuffed in an attic without a key
    Countless sunsets erased your shape and colors, making you smaller
    I have changed too, but you’re still in here, somewhere.

    1. Thank you, Susan. The prompt brought back memories of the first doll I saw in my life. It was made of rags and belonged to my aunt. The doll’s name was Carlotta (in Italian, Charlotte).

    2. Dolls are elaborate elements, they are made to reproduce people. In some cultures, they do represent people, they are not mere objects. Dolls are way more complex than many can believe.

    1. I like your contributions because they are the last thing I could think of when looking at the picture and seeing the prompt word. Your inspiration is very peculiar.

  2. He was a man! Full of action! With a scar!
    But I disguised him with long hair and lippy
    and a hint of patchouli. Goodness, how he hated me…
