Trifextra 81 – Life At First Sight


From the very first moments the senses form.

Shapes and movement; blacks and whites.

A loving mother’s face.

In time focus and control; spectral appreciation and wonder.

The full kaleidoscope of life revealed.


These 33 words from my entry into the Trifextra 81 writing challenge.

    I like how you focused on the progression in life. Imagine how startling it would be to a baby if they saw full detail and color right away! Great phrase, “kaleidoscope of life.”

      The last sentence came first and the rest was added on. As soon as it came into my head it sounded good so I went from there. Thanks for commenting.

      Cheers Jo-Anne. When I looked at the picture it just said to me ‘developing vision’. Was going to do something about a blind person regaining their sight but in the end went for a newborn baby.
