Questioning

Trifecta gave us an interesting weekend challenge this weekend.  Using only 33 words, write a piece using the words water, ring and stage.  Here’s my entry.  As always, be sure to check out other uses of these 3 words in a 33-word piece.

It had a ring of truth.
The water stopped.
They walked away
Thinking they’d won.
He knew better.
He smiled,
Finding Triumph
Even in Defeat.
The lights dimmed.
The stage cleared.

Silence reigned.

  5. It's not over til it's over! I like a story of triumph in what seems to be certain defeat.
