The Birth of a Master – 3LineTales

“Master, I’ve completed my work.”

“What’s this?…I asked you to paint reality in its purest form.”

“This is it–here we see only that which is true to the nature of the page, air and dust and pulp, untainted by the arrogance of man.”

*Written as a response to the Three Line Tales Week 88 photo prompt.

  1. ‘air and dust and pulp’: nice line. 🙂

  2. Nice response. Uplifting somehow.

  3. Brilliantly told, indeed! I admire your ability to tell a brief tale out of few words. I enjoyed the story. Keep it up!

      Thanks so much! 3Lines is my favorite flash prompt. More restrictive and yet more flexible than word counts.
