Trifecta :Week 105
For the final challenge Trifecta has left the choice to us writers.We are to give them exactly 33 of our best words.They want the words to bleed -definitely a tough challenge for us but then when has Trifecta given us a challenge that has been easy? 😀 Feels really unreal writing for Trifecta this final time but hope that someday,somewhere we meet again.Will miss the fabulous challenges and the dedicated Trifectans. All the best to everyone and here come my 33 words for what they are worth.
On the cobblestones of life
gambols in concert
silhouettes of past
play Chinese whispers
on bitter gall of regret.
Wow, some really lovely, strong images here. I loved “…forgotten laughter / ebullient- / gambols in concert / with tears…” Wonderful poem, Atreyee! I’m glad you came by to share this.
Thank you Christine for such warm compliments and coming from such an accomplished writer like you,it means more than ever :-)Also read that you have joined the Speakeasy team as an editor and are also going to start your own challenges-am going to look forward to seeing you there,tc and God bless xx
Love the lush words and images :). Beautiful!
Thank you Rach 🙂
I can tell you chose your 33 words carefully – you made the most of the imagery. I really like the last three lines: “Unsaid words coagulate, asphyxiate on bitter gall of regret.” They are the perfect ‘punch’ for the ending.
Aww Janna,that is such a sweet thing to say-am so touched by your praise-you made me moist eyed and that my friend is a rarity-so thanks a tonne 🙂
Yikes. Hope that’s not what’s for dinner, regret soup. Nicely done, Atreyee!
