Three Things Challenge #385

For 3TC:

Your three things today are:


When Billy and I walked into the house my mother was in hysterics. We had no idea what she was crying about and then I saw movement in my peripheral vision. Turning that way I saw a giant spider. No wonder she was freaking out! I started wailing too and our noise was sounding like a rock song. The loudness must have scared the creature away because suddenly we were alone and Billy was rolling on the floor laughing.

Sustain: Word of the Day Challenge


Your Future

Can you remember a time 

When you were able to see 

What your future would hold 

How successful you’d get to be? 

When you are able to say 

That you can aptly sustain 

All of the things that you’ve learned 

All of the things in your brain 

You will be a huge success 

You’ll go as far as can go 

You’ll find yourself in the clouds 

Success like the sun will glow.

Study: FOWC with Fandango

Written for:

Needing a study-buddy

When my work is getting hard 
and I really need to study 
I try and take a walk around 
to look for just one buddy 

I never had much success 
in learning from someone new 
but sometimes I just kick myself 
for I haven’t any clue 

Reaching out to other people 
to try and help myself 
is really what I need to do 
and put my pride up on a shelf.

Three Things Challenge #375

Your three things today are:


Little Worm

When the little wiggle worm 

Goes to eat his cheese 

He’s given flack from his friends 

For never saying please. 

He takes his turn at buggies house 

And shares his favorite dirt 

Buggie doesn’t mind the worm 

And loves that little squirt. 

They share their things and find their joy 

In giving to each other 

If you didn’t see their difference 

You’d think Buggie was his brother.

Your three things today are:


The Record

When I went to the park 

I saw in a tree 

A record was spinning 

It wasn’t from me 

I found that a person 

Tried to hang it up high 

Using a thing thread 

Like a fly in the sky 

The round disc was there 

To reflect all the sun 

I think that it’s pretty 

And happy it’s done.
