Three-Word Wednesday

This is my first try at Three-Word Wednesday: http://www.threewordwednesday.com/

The words this week are angelic, foster, ruin.

I decided to try it twice. Comments are welcome.


I

Fate, the foster child of heaven,

inscrutable—

just when we may expect it

to lead us to ruin

will suddenly turn

and play an angelic chord.



II
 

No. I reject your angelic smile

and your eyes that foster trust.

I won’t be trapped by perfect love.

I’ll remain forever free.

You won’t ruin me.

  5. Perfect love certainly is a trap and then we have to slap at the mosquito bites of enticement thereafter.

    1. I'm lucky enough to have what I consider "perfect" love; at least I don't see how it could be better. Thanks for reading and commenting!

  7. This was nice Elaine. I like the way you wove the words into your poem.

    I really need to figure out what I am going to do on Wednesday, there is the Write on Wednesday, Wordless Wednesday, and now I see a 3-Word Wednesday! "Eenie, meenie, minie, moe..." (grinZ)

    1. Thanks, Amy. I thought you'd like that one. Writing it reminded me a little of our "Rosebud" poems.
