Three To Get Ready …

Day 3 – April PAD

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.


Three To Get Ready …

I am the Queen of Procrastination

Always have been … always will be

Even this prompt today has been

put off and put off and put off

as I write other things that need

writing yet could be written

any other time …

All along in my mind I keep hearing:

One For the Money

Two For the Show

Three to Get Ready


Four to Go


Such is life …

Such is the life of a poet

Such is the life of a writer

Sometimes the words flow

and I skip directly to the

Four to Go not needing

preparation of the

Three previous steps

to get there


Sometimes I get locked

into Three to Get Ready

for way too long … even

cycling back through

one and two to only return

to three and sit there

pen in hand or fingers

tapping out a beat on

the keyboard waiting

for the words to magically

appear and form themselves

into something that might

if I am lucky resemble

a poem


So …

Here I sit …

Fingers tapping …

Brain in a fog …

Muse on vacation …

trying to get past

Three To Get Ready…
