National Poetry Month – Day 3

For the month, National Poetry Monthy, I’m trying to meet the daily challenges presented on a blog titled Poetic Asides. It’s written by Robert Lee Brewer and is part of the Writer’s Digest web site.

Here’s today’s challenge/prompt.

“The third day of about any new routine is the hardest, including the 2016 April PAD Challenge. Let’s get through this together and own this month of poeming.

For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Three (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles include: “Three Blind Hippos,” “Three Muskrats,” “Three’s Company,” “Three Movies Is Too Many for The Hobbit, Peter Jackson (just saying),” and so on.”

Here’s my poem.

Three Stanzas

Like three small stones
in a child’s sneaker,
tucked in the darkness

where toes curl
through a growing hole
in a dirty sock worn,

frayed from play:
slaying dragons,
wielding wooden swords.
