The Power of Three

Madame Julie used a card for a bookmark. “So you’re the fellow who won a reading at the poker game.” The young man nodded. “Sit.” She reached for her tarot deck and smiled.


Trifecta wants us to talk about one object with three uses this weekend. Come play with us. Or cross my palm with silver. Whichever.

  1. Madame Julie is quite bossy. And of course I enjoyed your fun take on the prompt (I took 3 pictures, it’s not a photo contest, but if it was…)

  2. Left unsaid, but I’m thinking the bookmark would have been the Jester…er, I mean, Joker. Very cool the way you weave the three uses into a straight up story!

  5. This is a nice way to string those cards together and to put two card users face-to-face. 🙂 I like this take on the prompt.
