Edge – Trifecta

23 Feb


Here’s what this weekend’s Trifecta is all about:

“This weekend we are playing another type of word game with you.  Below are photos from the 33rd page of one of our very favorite books, Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge.  What we want you to do is to scour the page (click to enlarge), choose 33 words, and reshape those words into a piece of your own.  Your piece does not have to tell an entire story.  We just want to see what you can do with this particular word bank.  Punctuation is up to you.  Use whatever you need, whether or not it appears in the photos.”



I absolutely love this!  It has bones and flowers and children and rifles, such intriguing contrasts. Here’s the 33 words I chose:


Blackness carried him along

Wild woods of his mind

Starflowers so hollow-boned

Entrails of umbrage

Ripping, flapping panic

So hidden

Beneath the green leaves

He picked up the rifle

Edge of life came

      You fumbled? Your piece is brilliant, I have just read it! But thank you very much, I’m glad you like mine as well. Trifecta is always so exciting because you never quite know the end result when you start. I often start taking out words and end up changing the whole thing.

    Everyone seems to be finding something wonderful in your piece. For me, “Edge of life came.” Well done.
