Three Line Tales: Of Gods and Storms #3Linetales #fiction #mythology

Thank you to Sonya of Only 100 Words for hosting 3 Line Tales.


Breno. Machado


1. A heartless cruel, brackish purple sky, alight with the lightening bolts Zeus aims. 2. He’s fried my heart, cupids arrow couldn’t restart, the lightening sizzled and cooked me alive –her choice to end me. 3. I look at you lovingly, Hades, coming softly; a purple blanket to cover my wounds, enwrap me soundly in love; who knew she’d be the one to end me, purple orchids my favourite flower, smothering me in death; jealous Persephone, goddess of spring.

    Lovely stuff. A new myth written there, complete with purple orchids and a resignation at the end. Well written

      Thank you Lynn. I felt I should try a simpler three-line tale as opposed to the long ones or quotes I put in. I was happy with the results and happy you like them as well.

      Thank you Jade. Yeah, the storm made me think of it I guess. Different gods being responsible for different affects in nature. 🌺

      Thank you JR. When the first movie came in theatre, I actually really liked it. My little brother is well not little but often likes things like that, so I’m not the only grown-up without kids in the theatre. The second movie was decent as well. I did read up to the third book I think. I can see why your son likes them 🙂

    Love, love upended, power and teasing from the gods–and yet appealing to them. Well, addressing them, at least. The hero’s journey, Joseph Campbell might say. I appreciate that both genders are depicted here, whatever the difficulties. And, yes, it’s dark and purple. But we get to spend time living in mythology, as we read. That’s impressive, Mandi.

    I feel the same way every Spring, allergy Lovely piece. I’m a huge fan of mythology, I’ve missed it since graduating. Thanks for the memories. 🙂
