Trifextra – Week 81


This weekend’s challenge is the picture below. Check it out:


Watch this video below:


TrifextraIndustrious winds seeded fragrant forests. Their buds burst in spring, and summer blew breezes for squirrels and birds. Fall leaves in mutinous colour rejoiced, then faded to lacklustre sleep again, until another spring.

Author: Let's CUT the Crap!

I'm getting a little LONG in the tooth and have things to say about---ouch---AGEing. I believe it's certainly a state of mind but sometimes it's nice to hear that you're NORMAL. I enjoy reading by the truckload. I'm a grandma but I don't feel OLD although I'm not so young anymore. My plan is to stick it out as long as I can on this lovely planet and only will leave it kicking and screaming!

  1. W.O.W. Nailed this one perfectly.


  2. Your words seem to echo the video!


  3. You told a whole story in one paragraph. Hemingway would be proud of you. Your words painted a lovely portrait.


  4. A lovely telling of the circle of flora…and of fauna, come to that. :))


  5. mutinous, lacklustre – love these descriptors!!!


  6. Wow, you told a story of the seasons in just 33 words. My favorite line is, “fall leaves in mutinous colors.”


  7. I like the mutinous color bit. Very cool.


  8. Such a beautiful progression through the seasons. Well done.
    Thank you for linking up! Please remember to return to vote!


  9. I like the imagery of the fall leaves burning themselves out in their mutinous color, bringing on the winter. Very cool. 🙂


  10. I love the way you express how the beautiful colors of fall seemingly rejoice and then sleep again, until spring. Beautiful.


  11. Beautiful!
    I especially live the first sentence. The idea of winds being industrious is lovely, on top of the fragrant forests. 🙂


  12. Tess you are just getting better and better at these. You did a wonderful job at progression


  13. So amazing Tess!!!
    And you nailed it beautifully 🙂


  14. This is lovely, Tess. “…mutinous colors.” I love that!


    • Thank you, Jayne. Seems “…mutinous colors.” has gone over well.
      You’re on Blogger, I think? Do you know why I can’t comment from WordPress to Blogger? A number of Trifextras I’ve read over the past weeks kick me out Blogger. Do you know of a solution, perhaps?


  15. Wonderfully matched Tess!


  16. Wow, the wonders of time lapse! Has anyone ever time-lapsed a person, I wonder? If there was a god, perhaps he could time lapse human history (or universal history). It’s quite an interesting thought (goes away and thinks about it while making dinner) :l)


Some things in life are complicated. Let's keep it simple.
