Constant Companion – Trifextra Week Eight One

This weekend, the Trifecta team’s Trifextra challenge asks us to write only 33 words, inspired this beautiful photo project by Erik Solheim. Here is the still – 3,888 images from a year’s worth of pictures taken of the view from his window.

The Trifecta team have obviously been disturbed by our affectation for the dark, the depressing, the sinister and the bleak, so we have been requested, nay ordered, to give the dark side a swerve this week. Joy, light, happiness are the order of the day! A heck of a restriction for some of us!

So, after much joy-induced angst, here’s my offering this week. I hope and pray that it fits the bill! Let me know your thoughts, and why not visit the Trifecta website to read the brilliant offerings of others, and take part yourself whilst you’re at it?

– Constant Companion –

Cat adopted me on my arrival.

Now I leave, Cat in tow; my familiar.

She and I have communed with this land in mute admiration.

In return, the trees whispered to us incessantly.

  1. This whole piece is a total delight. I especially loved this:
    “She and I have communed with this land in mute admiration.
    In return, the trees whispered to us incessantly.”

    Beautifully written. Living among the mountains with a cat, I can completely relate.

  2. “Constant Companion” is such a wonderful thought, and your 33 words beautifully summed that up. I love the idea of animal familiars, and incessantly whispering trees! Very well written, these 33 words!

  3. This is a sweet little piece, but I have to say I laughed out loud at “joy-induced angst.” 🙂 It’s a little amusing how some of us struggle with the lighter side of things.
