boisterous bird songs punctuate
the humming traffic

Roaring fires and mulled wine
Buds and chirping birds
Radiant green hues
Light and shadows
Explosion of colour
Anticipation of snow
This was written for this weekend’s Trifextra challenge.
This weekend’s prompt is to write 33 words exactly inspired by the following photo project by Eirik Solheim. Each slice of the photo compilation is a different day of the year, taken from the same location. – See more at:
The remains of Adam M, who disappeared in the desert over 10 years ago, have been identified. Hikers stated they were drawn to the location by a gold tooth glistening in the sun.
Trifextra: Week Eighty
Full disclosure: we’re going a bit weird on you with this weekend’s short prompt. Trifecta editor Lisa has a son who just lost his first tooth. In honor of such a creepy event, we want you to write a 33-word response that uses the word tooth. Your response can use any definition of the word but cannot tell the story of someone losing a tooth. (Because we just told that story, and it was pretty boring the first time.)

When I was 10 I wanted to be an actress (women were actresses then not actors). When I told my parents about this they discouraged me but I am not sure what their reasons were. When I told my grandmother she was appalled and made it sound like I wanted to be a prostitute.
Being the good little girl that I was, I tried to forget about my dream and in my teens I found some excuse not to join a theatre club that friends were setting up. I remember not wanting to disappoint my father.
Over the next few years I had several career interests – fashion designer, interior designer, international truck driver, photographer, civil engineer and architect. Eventually, after several random jobs, moving abroad and a University degree, I ended up with a job in a large global corporation which has no connection whatsoever with the creative career dreams of my childhood and teenage years.
Photography – one of my creative interests
When you were 10, what did you want to be when you grew up? What are you now? Are the two connected?
She believed his love was true
Only when he saw red
She turned black and blue
Now purple and yellow flowers
Grow over the little grave
A white stone for a ‘beloved daughter’
The Trifextra challenges seem to bring out my dark side…
For Trifextra Week Seventy Eight you are asked to write a thirty-three word piece that has a color in it. Use the color to describe anything you like, or use anything you like to describe your color, but keep it creative and keep it short.
