Trifextra 97 – To Be Forewarned is Forearmed

penguinsThe sun’s rays dazzle against the crumbling basin of the central Antarctic reservoir.

High above carrion circle;

Emaciated penguins collapse in the dust.

Meanwhile politicians fester in their myopic delusion:

Global Warming?

Nonsense!

trifecta

These 33 words form my entry into the Trifextra 97 challenge. The story is based on the words ‘Basin‘, ‘Dazzle‘ and ‘Myopic‘. I hope you enjoy what I did with them.

        This made me laugh. I so know that feeling of having to pare down words anywhere I can. Great writing – I really like this!

    I love the word dust here. Because it gives weight to the reality of what is happening. I saw a documentary on the fate of polar bears. I cried and cried.

    Excellent 33 words!
