Three Word Wednesday - although a day late

hopefully, not a dollar short. I have thought about participating in this for months, but originally envisioned writing a story around the words, a long story. Shelby writes just a sentence and I always love reading them, so, since I am trying to learn to say more in less, I've decided this is the perfect challenge to do between Haiku and Poetry Thursday. I may post a poem, a thought, or an un-poetic mess .

So, no time but the present! (And thanks to Shelby for leading me to Bone, who posts the challenge.). Join in?

gain -- oblivious -- jewelry

He tried to gain
entrance to her heart
through jewelry, but found
she was oblivious to bling
and sought only a man's soul.

Hi, MeeAugraphie. Nice poem. I'm quite sure no one else used the phrase "oblivious to bling" this week :)

Welcome to 3WW. Hope to see you back next week.

Bone, I'll be back, it is too much fun not to. I liked the smile you shared, I don't mind being different. Thank you for reading mine and commenting. Glad you let me participate.

This sounds like a wonderful idea. I would like a reason to have to post everyday. Today was going to go down in the record books as "the worst day of my life...so far" but then I calmed down a bit. Yesterday my wife was fired because her position was 'eliminated,' and today work was terrible-full of threats, tears, and langauge. Then I got home, watched a movie and read your comments. The comments more than anything else made this day turn out okay-I really appreciate that dearly. I would love to develop a friendship from this because you made a tremendous difference in my life, and probably were not even trying. I think I can take a step forward tomorrow with a smile. By the way, you did an awesome job with the three words. Hope this wasn't an overload. I'll be brief in the other comments. :)

Chris, brevity is never needed, besides yours was not even long. I love comments probably as much as you do -- and mine are many times way too long, but that is who I am.

As frustrating as it is, positions are eliminated and we have to regroup and find another way to get through our days. . that doesn't lessen the pain, but it gives us a direction, we head through it however we can. I know one person who has recovered quickly and one who has not, the one who did not got lost in their depression.

As for bad days, one job I cried nearly every day when I got home for two long awful years - every day is only the slightest of exaggerations. It got better, but I know it does not always.

That I made a difference for you in any way has made my day. . . most of us want to make a difference, don't we? People have helped my family since I can remember over the years, sometimes by actions, sometimes by a kind word and I am still grateful.

I'll be back to read more, I love your poetry. I hope your day tomorrow goes better, both you and your wife.

Franx Budi - How great that it touched your heart, thank you. And thank you for taking the time to comment.


In my words:

This is but a one-sided conversation;
it takes you to make it more.
