3WW CCXLV

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:

Grip; verb: take and keep a firm hold of; grasp tightly; maintain a firm contact, especially by friction; noun: A firm hold; a tight grasp or clasp; a manner of grasping or holding something.

Prefer; verb: like (one thing or person) better than another or others; tend to choose.

Thread; noun: A long, thin strand of cotton, nylon, or other fibers used in sewing or weaving; a thing resembling a thread in length or thinness, in particular; something abstract or intangible, regarded as weak or fragile; verb: Pass (a long, thin object or piece of material) through something and into the required position for use.

I knew I couldn't incorporate all three words into a haiku, so I wrote a tanka instead! Thanks for the challenge!

I prefer to post
when I have a grip on threads.
This will have to do.

This is the first time I've tried to fit Three Word Wednesday into a theme I'd already decided on; usually I write whatever the words make me think of. A good challenge!

3WW how I've missed you!

Oh Lord, each week these get harder and harder.

More to say than poetry today. But enjoyed the challenge. Was great to write without the prompts as the focus, but rather just words to weave into the text. Thanks.

It took me a bit longer than I had anticipated, but I do finally have something for you. I hope it appeals to you. Thank you, I really enjoy this 3WW :-)

I posted on Wednesday, I swear I did, but I left it in last week's round up. My goodness. :)

Today's return to 3WW is a bit sadder and a bit more sci-fi than I expected from today's words, but I like it just the same.

This was a challenge for me, but the spark lit this afternoon, so I scribbled it on a paper napkin at lunch! Amy

Sitting in a cafe before church (Lex is prepping and I have an hour), I found a computer and posted a second poem to the prompt! And the Captcha is "proms," which may speak to the first (Sun Scrib) poem, which is kind of cool... Amy
