3WW CCCII

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 and paste it to Mr. Linky below). As always, there's no hard-and-fast rule that you have to post on Wednesday.

Hey, make 3WW part of your NaNoWriMo plans! Tell your friends!

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:

Compromise; noun: An agreement or a settlement of a dispute that is reached by each side making concessions; a middle state between conflicting opinions or actions reached by mutual concession or modification; verb: [no obj.] settle a dispute by mutual concession; [with obj.] weaken (a reputation or principle) by accepting standards that are lower than is desirable.

Decision; noun: A conclusion or resolution reached after consideration; the action or process of deciding something or of resolving a question; the ability or tendency to make decisions quickly.

Forward; adverb: Toward the front; in the direction that one is facing or traveling; onward so as to make progress; toward a successful conclusion; toward the future; ahead in time; adjective: directed or facing toward the front or the direction that one is facing or traveling; noun: An attacking player in basketball, hockey, or other sports; verb: Send (a letter or e-mail) on to a further destination.

This is my first time here, a three word Wednesday virgin... I'm finding I really like prompts like this... And I further appreciate the definitions with the words. I'm looking forward to reading your poems.

Aiyeeeeee... Nico... I couldn't leave a comment on your site. The only choice I have is the URL ... it's the choice after the OpenID when the box is expanded.... what can I say, I'm a simple gal... but your poem... ah... here is my comment, I hope you see it...

but I could not
turn away, I could
not turn away.

To me, this is the heart of the poem, the grief that isn't really private, we're all connected, and it's moments like this that remind us and how can we turn away... I know I too have experienced this, the recognition and the sharing of another's grief... some moments with strangers can run so deeply... this poem touched me very deeply.
