Three Things Challenge

Hosted by Di at pensitivity101

Your three words today are:

Before I was able to think about writing I saw the word “kiln” and thought I would share my first pieces of pottery from the class David bought me for my birthday. Not great but I am happy with them. It’s hard to really capture the colors since I’m not setting up any fancy photoshoot!

I am not keen on the color design I used on the “ashtray-looking” piece. I didn’t know that how it would look when it was finally out of the kiln. If I leave it outdoors it will eventually grow some sort of algae that looks like kelp. I just haven’t decided where to put it. Maybe even a coaster for under a plant.

Your final three words for this week are:


Once upon a time I existed
in a world where there never saw pain
but now in the life that I’m living
I refuse to live life feeling vain
Instead I love the world all around me
I enter with a curious mind
Life can expire so quickly
I enjoy every last minute I find.

Your three words today are:

It wasn’t anything
newer than before
my cousin just arrived
standing at my door
she had a magic bag
that hung from up her arm
she crafted it with fabric
some string and then some yarn
she said she needed help
a place for her to crash
her husband kicked her out
it was her nasty rash.

Your final three words for this week are:

Yeah, Right!

In a perfect universe
where everything is fair
the taxes for the poor
aren’t even barely there
the sweet signs of success
are shown in happy grins
cause money doesn’t matter
when there’s free stuff in the bins.

This challenge is hosted by Di!

Your three words today are:

I may speak quite loud,
but be certain won’t jeer,
come a bit closer
I’ll whisper’n your ear
you may be too tired
I may not be heard
the kettle is screaming
the noise is absurd
Come right beside me
to hear my fine thought,
lemons are sour
sugar is not!”

Your three things today are:

Life Not Online

If I look at all the stuff
that makes my world go round
I’d think I was a cable buff
with manuals abound!
‘Cause everywhere I turn to see
there’s paper everywhere
With paper eyes watching me
with their paper-whitish stare.
But then I go and grab my bag
of trash loaded with junk
and throw them like a dirty rag
with a soft papery “thunk”.

Your three things today are:

Are you serious
are you straight?
that guy you know
the one you hate
his name is Frank
and he’s the best
I’m being candid
He’s passed the test
He does the most
with what he’s got
go ahead
just one more shot
You’ll like him then
and you will see
He’s not as lazy
as he used to be.

I’m in a sing-songy mood today I guess!

Three Things Challenge #754

Below are three things that may, or may not, be related. Simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you.

Your three things today are:

Out for a dinner
red wine is a start
not a fan of red meat
not good for my heart
leaving out the Prime Rib
and opting for some fish
leaving room for sugar
in an big ice-creamy dish.
