Day 3. Day 3. Day 3. ヅ
Maureen Thorson's NaPoWriMo prompt: "Today, let’s turn our vision outward, and write fan letters. I challenge you to write a poem in the form of a fan letter to a celebrity. Now, this could be a celebrity from long ago, and needn’t be an actor or singer (though it could be). You could write to George Washington or Dorothy Dandridge, Marie Curie or The Weeknd. Happy writing!"
Robert Lee Brewer's PAD 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."
Let's start with Alan today: "Thorson wants fan letters today, and Brewer wants a poem that has to do with three something, so I am going autobiographical and thinking about three songs that I wish lasted longer because while I think they are perfect, they leave me wanting more. Honestly, I could play all three of these for hours on a continuous loop and love them all. (Had it been four, by the way, I would have included Ringo Starr's 'It Don't Come Easy.')"
Three Songs I Wish Were Longer
Alan, loved that first song when I played in rock bands in high school. I recall wondering why The Box Tops sang
Sarah also merged both prompts today, while simultaneously using the appropriate inherited form, a sonnet.
Three Years Clean: Confessions of a fangirl
I love the "-ia" (sounds like "ya") rhyme with "you," Sarah. So cool!
Jed's poem today also does cool stuff with rhyme.
Jed, I like how the closing stanza is essentially a triplet in slant rhyme.
Ven's mix of "Three (blank)" and "fan letter" is equally entertaining.
And thanks to you, Ven. Love it.
Here's my little mashup of "fan letter" and "Three (blank)." In normative rhyme.
Three For Rock of Ages
And here's photographic proof that Jimi Hendrix did play a Gibson SG. Not red, but we'll see that in heaven!
