Trifextra: In Fates’ Hands

The Moirai

In Fates’ Hands

Clotho’s ancient hands spin gossamer threads of you and I. Lachesis draws our cards and lays them on the table. We dance through this life, together, as Atropos waits to cut our threads.


This is my submission for this weekend’s Trifextra challenge, in which we had to write 33 words about a famous trio.

And don’t forget to check out the Speakeasy creative writing challenge. The prompts for the coming week will be up on Sunday.

  1. oh so beautiful, always your words are just so RIGHT. The Fates are one of my favorite trios for sure, but I am always praying that they are kind to me and the people I love.

    hope you’re having a good weekend 🙂
