A Few Words for Wednesday!

"There is no lighter burden, nor more agreeable, than a pen."
~Petrarch

"For every path you choose, there is another you must abandon, usually forever."
~ Joan D. Vinge

"Excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better." ~ Pat Riley


****************************

The three words of today are... precise.. gradual... abandon..

Three Word Wednesday gives us a three word combination each week to play around with.. I often write poems with the words and many times haiku.. This week the word abandon seemed to strike a chord deep within this person I know as me.. I don't know why..

I did a couple of things with the words today..
#1~ a three minute brainstorm... very little all alone but it might show up again somewhere...

~ "let me be precise on what you are asking of me".. her boldness aglow beneath the darkening sky light.. "you expect me to plan a day-trip.. complete with a catered picnic.. and then just abandon the entire riding party to your Tom Foolery.."
She caught the barest nod of the silver curls.. his wicked smile achingly potent... a gradual persuasion to even his strongest rivals...
With a stomp of her booted foot and a toss of her head.. she pulled out her day trip planner.

#2~ an etheree....
Bought

Please
let me
be precise...
I am the chief!
your every wish
now lies within my grasp.
There will be no gradual
lessening of your temptation.
But feel free to keep this thought in mind~
I would never abandon you cheaply!

It's funny to think that I stop by often to drop EntreCards, but it's when I see you linked at a different site that I stop and really think about what I'm reading.
