Gold and Glitter

Friday, July 19, 2013

On now to this weekend’s Trifextra challenge.  This weekend we are giving you three words and asking for you to give us back another thirty of your own, making a grand total of thirty-three words. Your words to work with are:

ring

water

stage

   

Common metal,

Simple ring;

Eyes water and speak,

Volumes more

Than libraries offer;

Spotlight and center stage

Unnecessary now,

Because all that glitters

Isn’t gold;

But gold, rubbed clean,

Always glitters.

I do.

Third Time’s the Charm!

Trifextra: Week Seventy-Three:

“This weekend we’re asking for 33 of your own words inspired by the idiom, third time’s the charm.  This familiar phrase may have an indeterminate origin, but its meaning is clear.  Whether or not you include the phrase itself is up to you.  Just make sure to use exactly 33 words.  And, as usual, have fun with it!”

“Sure? As your attorney, I…”

“I’m sure.”

“Both your divorce settlements have cost you. A third…”

“Hey.” Shrug. “Love’s always worth a shot. And you know what they say: third time’s the charm!”
