This week’s Trifextra Challenge was a fun variation on the usual. We had 33 words for our entry, and were instructed to include a palindrome (either a single word, or a palindromic phrase). I found one that I’ve included at the end of my piece.


Kisses will be given, not stolen. Stories will be shared, and dreams realized. Wounds will heal with the passage of time, and we’ll gaze with amazement at our progress. Won’t lovers revolt now? 


  1. great use of the 33 words

    and great last line

    Ally :


  2. What a great 33 🙂 Love it!

  3. I enjoyed this whole post. Well done! Thanks for this and, for all great stories you have told during your time with Trifecta. I have always loved the name of your blog, btw. Good luck in your future days beyond Trifecta. 🙂

    • Thank you! I’m going to miss the Trifecta challenges, but I’m very grateful to have connected with the community of writers they brought together.

  4. This is powerful, yet also quite sweet. Great balance and great writing. 🙂

  5. Hahaha Makes peace, love and understanding sound so boring!

  6. Love this, especially:
    “Kisses will be given, not stolen.”

  7. This was a great read!

  8. Nicely done! Good palindrome!

  9. As Morrison once chanted: “some are born to sweet delight, some are born to the endless night.” This piece has an excellent palindrome, and powerful message. I’m just too much of a cynic to take it 🙂 Nice work! “kisses will be given, not stolen” so hopeful, and elegant.

  10. Fabulous 33! Quite a powerful idea. Thanks for linking up.
