My latest entry in the lovely Three Line Thursday poetry contest wherein you supply three lines of poetry, ten words for each line, in response to the above photo, courtesy of Tracy Ann. My entry was lucky enough to receive an Honorable Mention with the judge’s generous feedback:
“DELICATE BUT VERY RAW EMOTION IN SO LITTLE SPACE! THIS ENTRY USED BEAUTIFUL LANGUAGE TO REVEAL HINTS OF COLOR PAIRED WITH PASSION AND INWARD STRUGGLE.”
Taking my stand with breakable legs,
splashing fiery orange courage into a black abyss,
the steely black eyes hide my temptation to flutter away.
