Evening shadows

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.


Evening shadows

On the cobblestones of life

forgotten laughter


gambols in concert

with tears,

silhouettes of past

play Chinese whispers

desires bubble


yesterday’s cauldron.

Unsaid words

coagulate, asphyxiate

on bitter gall of regret.

  2. 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.
