Three Line Tales: Broken

three line tales, week ten – toy sailboats

The models served as a cold, cruel reminder of his limitations.

Once his greatest joy, the things he loved most now mocked and taunted him.

Sailing rough seas mangled his body, making him a prisoner  to his wheelchair.



This is my offering for Week 10 of Three Lines Tales Challenge hosted by Sonya at Only 100 Words.  The guidelines are as follows:

  • Write three lines inspired by the photo prompt (& give them a title if possible).
  • Link back to this post.
  • Tag your post with 3LineTales (so everyone can find you in the Reader).
  • Read and comment on other TLT participants’ lines.
  • Have fun.

Won’t you join us?
