TLT Throwback – Year 3: Fifteen

May your life have poetry and your poetry, life…

Three Line Thursday remains a lovely addition to the blog here at Ink In Thirds. Although the magazine has come to an end, publishing issues, I will continue to post these weekly TLT prompts, as long as people participate. I will always remain a champion of writing and writers!

Now let’s lay down some ink!

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: Barbed

  1. They set this up to keep us apart
    But don’t fear. Stick through the spaces
    And meet me there, lace our hands; we are winners.

  2. thistled reminders take her back to that first time –
    surging panic, hot, prickly skin, sudden nausea, the overwhelming desperation:
    the will to white knuckle some real part of herself

    1. Brilliant, Steve. All over the internet, people are reading this and secretly thinking, “I wish I was a blueberry muffin…”
      : – )

    2. I’m seeing a vast inland, wild American landscape. But one which could exist in the land of Oz. Great job.


    1. That’s brilliant, Ewan. I think if we merged our two efforts, it could be the start of the type of story that Hollywood is desperate to film. Just a thought. Anyway, I was a little less than patient with my toast this morning.
