TLT Week 24: Midnight Sun and Polar Night

I feel like I’ve been groping around in the dark lately, searching for that spark of inspiration. It sometimes helps when I’m prompted to get the creative juices flowing again. I stumbled upon Week Twenty-Four of Three Line Tales on the Reader today and felt the urge to take part. I thought I’d give it a try, for kicks.

The (Winter and Summer) Solstice – the longest (and shortest) day of the year, depending on how you flipped it, and boy was I about to flip it; I’m going to make the two opposites collide in a way that no one, magician, beast, or mortal, has ever seen.

There it was, parked, exactly where I’d anticipated it’d be, looking like nothing more than an ordinary, overworked, rust red-painted, farm-tilling tractor -nothing even remotely conspicuous- halted on a patch of green, beneath the unsuspecting sky.

My mind buzzed as my fingers tingled in anticipation, I could feel the energy radiating from the tips as I began my approach, mouthing the words carefully as I rehearsed the spell in my head – today, I will change my, and potentially everyone else’s, world irrevocably… I hope.

  1. Great take on it- seems it was just the thing to get you inspired! I’m hooked on 3Ltales now. I didn’t imagine I’d do them week in week out, but here I am about 10 or so weeks after my first foray. On a side note, I always find it amusing when there are similarities in words used in my post and that of others doing the prompt- funny coincidences- in this instance, we both used the word ‘tingle’- what are the odds, hey?

    1. Thank you! I like your take on it as well. The world is full of pretty neat coincidences, no? Anyway, I just wanted to say I appreciate your inspiration commentary after too. I agree that there is some value in sharing our work with others in this community, especially amidst all the negativity. Keep doin’ what you do!
