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 encourage you to enter weekly and help spread the word. Some of the poems from the weekly contributions will appear 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: Shine

Love and Ink,

  1. Each year begins with the memory of waiting
    For light to fade and death to take hold
    As I resume the task of recovering my shattered pieces

    @floweringink (hey, I remembered)

    I also want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and thank you all for welcoming me so warmly into the TLT family in 2018. I have grown to love Thursdays and can’t wait to read what everyone offers this year!

    1. Where’s that superglue? We can’t have shattered pieces of contributors all over the place. 😠

      Happy New Year to you, flowering ink (Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!) and thanks for all your lovely comments. Hope 2019 is good to you.
