Night (A Trifecta Story)

Trifecta Challenge:

For this weekend’s challenge, we’d like you to read the 33 words below and then add 33 of your own words to move the story along. Have a great weekend and good luck!

Trifecta prompt

    “The last strains of sunlight lingered in the corners, grasping every available point of refraction.
    She slid her fingertips along the glass wondering if this was all there ever was.
    Or could be.”

    Deciding swiftly, nobody could stop her.
    The sun gathered and died.
    That glass shard that held the sun’s rays now ran red along her wrists; baptized in the onset of that eternal night.

    • Thank you. I like that line too – especially the “baptized” though I struggled with “he eternal night” as it was too cliche-ish for my writing style but given the time and the word constraints I settled. At one point I had “baptized in the void of night” which I like too.

  1. Randy, thanks for inquiring about my lack of participation lately. I’ve been busy with various activities outside the house, and haven’t used my computer much. However, though I do read on my i-phone, yours and others work, it’s a nuisance to me to comment more than a bit from the phone. Also, when I consider sending a poem to a publication. often the stipulation is no work published online is accepted. So, sometimes I hesitate in posting. Maybe I’ll give these 33 words a try today, just for fun.

Have some fun...
