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: Rose

Love and Ink,

About the Author Grace Black

Grace Black mingles with words as she navigates this realm.


  1. Grief bleeds onto petals that unravel in the waves
    The echo of your fragrance pulled into the current
    Memories lose vibrance in the depth of a breaking heart


    I want to take a minute to thank Grace for Ink in Thirds and for TLT. I will miss them both very much. It has been a pleasure and an honor to come into this space every week, with such talented writers, to be inspired and moved and to meet so many wonderful people. I am sad that this is the last year of TLT, but it is already an amazing one, full of gorgeous writing!!!! Thank you to everyone for being so supportive and welcoming from the very first moment I stepped through these TLT doors!!!

    2. Very powerful, Susan. And yes, I’ll miss this space too, it is a very healthy habit I got used to. Like Lisa says, it would be good to keep checking on each other’s work.
      Thank you, Grace Black; your work is great and I wish you more success.
