3WW CCXXXIX

Each week, I post three words. You write something using the words.
Then come back and post a link to the contribution with Mr. Linky (but please, link to the exact post, not your blog, by clicking on the exact post title). As always, there's no hard-and-fast rule that you have to post on Wednesday.

But I invite everyone to check back often to read and comment on other contributions. This is, after all, a community for writers who clamor for feedback.

This week's words:

Grace; noun: Simple elegance or refinement of movement; (in Christian belief) the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings; verb: Do honor or credit to (someone or something) by one's presence.

Jitter; noun: Feelings of extreme nervousness; slight irregular movement, variation, or unsteadiness, especially in an electrical signal or electronic device; verb: Act nervously.

Thin; adjective: Having opposite surfaces or sides close together; of little thickness or depth; (of a person) having little, or too little, flesh or fat on their body; having few parts or members relative to the area covered or filled; sparse.

Linda Jacobs said...

Thanks, Thom! I loved the words but I had a hard time incorporating them; my poem just kept getting longer and longer but I had fun trying.

Tony Noland said...

Jitter was tricky, but my limerick is up. Topical, too.

Peter Dudley said...

caffeine's sharp jitter
lends no grace to my haiku
but it keeps me thin

I hope you enjoy haiku wednesday. I particularly like my first one this week.

Madeleine Begun Kane said...

Thanks! I've squeezed those words into a political haiku:

Thin facade of grace
masking evil intentions
of jittery pols.

Fear Not the Darkness but What lies Within said...

Very nice Madeline

Even if you don't read my poem, do watch the video of Whitey's Lindy Hoppers. Joyful, joyful!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Like the Susan above me, I've been away too long. Felt good to write something short again.

Jessica Prescott said...

A short but fun poem, I think.

I call mine a cynical self-portrait, but it's not all bad. :P

First Kill: http://mdmerritt.blogspot.com/2011/05/first-kill.html

A kid with his first shotgun gets a hard lesson. The plot's basically true, I added the details.

It took me a while to get to these words, but I did it.
