This post was written in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge weekend prompt:
Write anything you want, in whichever form you please, so long as your response is exactly 33 words and includes the word “mother.”
It occurred to me, after reading all of the lovely poems and tributes other people have written at Trifecta, that I should probably clarify right off the bat that this has nothing to do with my actual mother.
Because I missed the regular Trifecta prompt, I decided to incorporate this week’s word in my Trifextra response.
enig·ma noun \i-ˈnig-mə, e-\
1: an obscure speech or writing
2: something hard to understand or explain
3: an inscrutable or mysterious person
