Deconstructed. (Trifexta Writing Challenge #49)

06 Jan

This is my first ever entry for the Trifecta/Trifexta writing challenge.  If you’ve never seen it, it’s a really interesting community with some wonderful writers.  I’ve enjoyed reading the responses to intriguing prompts on this site, and am excited to participate! 

“On to the weekend challenge.  As you’ll recall from your elementary science class days, the structure of the earth can be divided most simply into three sections: core, mantle, crust…Give us 33 words from it.  Interpret the prompt however you wish–literal, metaphorical, or somewhere in between.”


Rapid, earth approaches –
Body, smashed
left broken, aground
I still fall –
past the past
traveling through history
excavating buried truth
transcending social construction
Alive –
In the Core of Love.

    I’m glad you decided to give Trifecta a try. It is a lot of fun! Great first entry/response. The line about falling past the past really stuck out for me. When we love, that’s exactly what we do.
