Three Line Poetry: It Looked Just Like You

The following was written by Writers in the Grove member, Lorelle VanFossen, inspired by Prompt: Three Line Poetry.

“I had to get it as it looked just like you.”
Hot pink and orange, plastic and metal, indescribable.
“Thank you, I know exactly where to put it.”

Prompt: Three Line Poetry – Gifts

The prompt this week was inspired by the concept of the three line poetry, a poem limited to 3 lines. Called a tercet, a haiku-style poem written rhymed or unrhymed as a triplet, a complete stanza in three lines. Three Line Poetry, a part of Prolific Press (bookstore), accepts submissions of three line poetry for publishing in their books.

The prompt was to write a three line poem inspired by gifts, gift-giving, gift-receiving, or the concept of gifts in general.
