Promise of Future

The neat stripes, the button eyes,

the deft dance, careful advance,

romanced the yellow, which

mellowed before the curves and angles

which all seemed perfect and felt right.


The fling didn’t last long.


But, ardent as it was, the affair,

Ended with a promise of future.

// You’ll find full guidelines on the TLT page – here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write three lines inspired by the photo prompt (& give them a title if possible).
  • Link back to this post (& check the link shows up under the weekly post).
  • Tag your post with 3LineTales (so everyone can find you in the Reader).
  • Read and comment on other TLT participants’ lines.
  • Have fun.

Happy three-lining!//
