Trifextra says,“Now onto this week’s Trifextra prompt. Charles Dickens, in A Christmas Carol, wrote “There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.” We are giving you exactly 33 words to make us laugh out loud and spread some festive cheer.”
: a medieval chemical science and speculative philosophy aiming to achieve the transmutation of the base metals into gold, the discovery of a universal cure for disease, and the discovery of a means of indefinitely prolonging life
: a power or process of transforming something common into something special
You must use the 3rd definition of the given word in your post.
The word itself needs to be included in your response.
You may not use a variation of the word; it needs to be exactly as stated above.
Only one entry per writer.
This week’s challenge is community judged.
And boy,oh boy,was this a tough cookie or what?I racked my brains till nothing was left except an empty shell.I read a few entries to see if it could spark a flame or at least a flicker-but nothing!Wish I knew some alchemy so that i could produce a winning entry,I thought,where are you my inspiration,my muse?Ah,time was running out & with just over three hours left,I was distraught.Will it be the first time that I will miss submitting an entry to Trifecta?Just 4 months old & already nothing to say?I decided to just start writing-wrote two stories but could not weave in the word prompt correctly,so started writing a poem.Yes,it is a silly,nonsensical poem(if one can call it a poem that is) but had fun writing it & that’s what these writing challenges are all about,I believe.So friends,here is my submission,waiting to read your feedback:-)
