Trifecta: Trails…

Posted by

This week’s Trifecta challenge:

For our weekday challenge, we return to our regular one-word prompt. Check out the third definition of trail (below), and respond, using the word exactly as it appears, in no less than 33 and no more than 333 words.

We wish you well.

trail verb \ˈtrāl\

1     a:  to hang down so as to drag along or sweep the ground
b:  to extend over a surface in a loose or straggling manner <a vine that trails over the ground>
c:  to grow to such length as to droop over toward the ground

2     a:  to walk or proceed draggingly, heavily, or wearily : plod, trudge
b:  to lag behind : do poorly in relation to others

USING THIS DEFINITION:  3:     to move, flow, or extend slowly in thin streams 

My entry:

A chance encounter.

Conversations filled with happiness and smiles…a trail of hope. 

Chemistry, sparks fly

A first kiss and stolen quiet moments together…a trail of faith. 

Time spent with one another,

Sharing secrets and making memories…a trail of love.

Thank you Chris, for the inspiration.


  1. Thanks for linking up this week. What a beautiful piece of writing and a wonderful tribute to love. Really pretty. We were looking for the verb form, not the noun, but we enjoyed reading your take on the prompt anyway. Hope to see you back again soon.
