The prompt is from Trifecta - 33 words including a palindrome (highlighted).
This is the last prompt Trifecta are running and I was sad to read that the site is closing its doors. I've not been a member for very long but I've enjoyed responding to the prompts (those strict word counts have really helped me tighten up my prose) and meeting the other members of this great community. The feedback I've had has been a great encouragement for me to sit down and write, and I've enjoyed reading the work of such a diverse and talented crew. I'm hoping that I can keep in touch with, and follow the continued work of the rest of you. To Trifecta and the people behind it - my thanks and gratitude, and best wishes for your future life and works.
