Three in All (for Trifextra)


It’s Trifextra Weekend Challenge time. And I’ve admittedly fallen off the radar a bit, for a variety of reasons. So, when this idea came to me late tonight (or is it now early tomorrow?), I wanted to put pen to paper before I forgot it. The rules are simple. Entrants are challenged to write a poem in either 33 words, 3 lines or 3 stanzas.

Three in All

* * * * * * * * * *

He was my first, and so like me say all who knew me when

The complications, sleepless nights – I’d gladly do again

His cautious nature and word play, they made him who he is

He’ll always hold my heart as I hope always to hold his

*

And then she entered like a shot, been blazing ever since

Filling life with light and color, ever so intense

She balanced things just perfectly, making them complete

This sense of satisfaction all from one so small and sweet

*

Then after all the obstacles, acceptance of the end

Came one more tiny miracle – my plans I would amend

But fate would not allow it, just four Christmas Eves ago

I love the one, I love the two, but three I’ll never know
