Deathly boring bourgeois existence
for little rich girl;
Mask of stupidity
for elegant, philosophical concierge.

Delicate camellias and
arrival of Japanese
brings
realizations of life’s beauty.

Death.

Then appreciation of
always within never.

From Trifecta: “This week we’re revisiting an early Trifextra prompt: retelling.  This time, we’re asking you to retell your favorite book.  In 33 words.  Nothing like a challenge.  We are sure you’re up to it.”

    • Please read it! I promise you that you will love it, and if you don’t… I guess I’ll read a book that you didn’t like so we can be even?
      Haha don’t know where I was going with that one, but the point is: READ IT! It’s such an amazing book.

  1. I have had this on my list for quite a while, but something always out me off of it. That last line was magnificent and sold me on the book. It’s now at the top of my list. Thanks for playing. Come on back Monday for the big 33rd challenge, it’s going to be fun.
