Trifextra: Pleased to Meet You

Trifextra’s prompt:

 

 

 

Here are my 33 devilish words-

 

 

 So tall.

 So dark.

 So handsome.

His presence in the room immediately drew me,

moth to flame.

His voice,

honey.

His touch,

velvet.

Me,

helpless, hopeless, hypnotized.

I should have guessed his name.

Trifextra: Here We Are Now, Entertain Us

One left the spotlight,

One was soon gone,

One found others and the music lives on.

Your angst and feedback scored my perplexing teenage world,

Seattle’s sons your influence remains powerful and bold.

This week’s Trifextra challenge provided yet another opportunity to do a Nirvana post:

This weekend we’re asking for 33 of your own words about a famous trio. The trio could be from literature, from history or from pop culture. Just make it yours and have fun with it. Good luck!

Seriously, you thought I’d pick another trio?

Trifextra: Bloody Good

This weekend’s Trifextra challenge instructed:

This week we are taking you, once again, back to school for a lesson in literary devices. Remember the apostrophe? About.com defines apostrophe as, “A figure of speech in which some absent or nonexistent person or thing is addressed as if present and capable of understanding.” That same site provides some excellent examples of apostrophes in classical literature. Check them out and then have a crack at it yourself. Give us your best 33-word example of an apostrophe.

And so in honor of Friday the 13th and in keeping with my Five for Friday post, I bring you a “Bloody Good” example of an apostrophe.

 

Oh horror flick, your blood and gore delight me.

You unsettle me with such sickeningly sweet slaughter.

Scream queens and twisted nerves, I clutch my blanket and quake at the tiniest of noises.

Trifextra: Round My Hometown

This weekend’s Trifextra challenge is to write a haiku:

HAIKU (noun)

: an unrhymed verse form of Japanese origin having three lines containing usually five, seven, and five syllables respectively.

Since my Five for Friday post today (go read it!) is all about how awesome my hometown is, I decided to tie the two together. Enjoy!

 

Dirt roads and bonfires

River bank summers with friends

Hometown love lingers

Trifextra: Good Boy?

“Good boy” she always says when Skippy goes potty outside.

And then she pats his head.

He even gets a doggie cookie sometimes when he comes in.

So why am I in timeout?

 

Time out
