Trifextra 101 – Opportunities Lost


I pass here every day,
Checking my reflection;
Looking, but not looking –
Willing those eyes to notice mine.

Today the table lies empty.
My reflection walks by,
Heartbroken and alone,
Praying you’ll return.


These 33 words form my entry into the Trifextra 101 challenge. The story was in response to the above photo prompt (picture courtesy of Thomas Leuthard/ I hope you enjoy what I came up with.

    Lovely little story! If only he had summoned the courage to go inside and meet her before she disappeared. Imagine the possibilities! ♥
