Trifecta Challenge: Black Wings

Went to a dark place with this particular Trifecta challenge.

CRAFT (noun)

1 :  skill in planning, making, or executing :  dexterity

2 a :  an occupation or trade requiring manual dexterity or artistic skill <the carpenter’s craft> <the craft of writing plays> <crafts such as pottery, carpentry, and sewing>

b plural :  articles made by craftspeople <a store selling crafts> <a crafts fair>

:  skill in deceiving to gain an end <used craft and guile to close the deal>

My entry…

Punishment swift and vengeful

Devious, evil

Pain unrelenting

It burns, scorches my soul

There is no forgiveness for me or for her

Her craft – perfected in Hell

Black wings enfold me

Forever burning

A Ridiculous Limerick :)

**DISCLAIMER:  If you are religious or offend easily, you probably will not find this funny.  STOP READING NOW!**  

The other night Billy and I were sitting around watching TV and we hear a news clip about a rock that went through a woman’s windshield.  The newscaster then says something to the effect of “you’ll never believe what was on her dashboard that saved her life!”

Billy looked over at me and said, “Wouldn’t it be funny if she had a bobble-head Jesus on her dashboard and that is what saved her life?’

His comment made this happen in my head…

There once was a redneck named Bubba

Who didn’t have time for a wife

He crashed his truck while holding a knife

And bobble-head Jesus saved his life!

Trifecta Challenge: A Short Poem

This latest Trifecta challenge intrigued me and the first thing I thought of was a monster in my toe.  The second thing I thought of was an evil entity in my cell phone that continually FORCES me to play Candy Crush.  He’s a real bastard, I tell ya.  I went with the asshole in my cell phone.

This week’s challenge:  It’s now time for some Trifextra fun. Thirty years ago, Roald Dahl published the book Dirty Beasts, a collection of poems for children about weird and wonderful animals. The last poem, however, is called The Tummy Beast about a boy who thinks there’s someone living in his belly. Your Trifextra challenge is to write 33 words on a beast in an unusual place. No swamps or forests or caves, we really want you to take your beast out of its comfort zone.

My entry & please forgive my corresponding photo.  It was the best I could come up with.

Oh! Mesmerizing Monster in my cell phone,

Why oh why won’t you leave me alone?

Candy crushing!  Crushing candy!  I can’t seem to quit!

Addicted I am and you give not one whit!

TRIFECTA CHALLENGE – Troubled

Haven’t done this in awhile.

The weekend Trifecta writing challenge:  We’re asking for 30 of your own words plus the three following words for a total of 33 words.

Tether Loft Crown

Staring out the window of my loft

My tether shattered

I feel hopeless and alone

Rain falls as I long for an end

Silently, almost knowingly, the crown of the oak tree beckons
