3WW Prompt

Here's my response to 3WW

Better Than Nexflex

We were comforted by the lines we weaved
in our virtual world we were all we needed

each other to be. No glaring headlights not even flashlights
flickering on freckles or flab flashed on the screen

warning of us the closing credits would roll soon.
No curtains drawn in our private theater.

Interesting idea of curtains not being drawn in your personal theatre.

Welcome to 3WW! :)

I was so drawn in by the way each word played off each other---I read it three or four times

It really captures lust
courting destiny

I like the way you weaved the words together, it flowed well. Loved the closing line!

Such a unique and different take on these words, thank you...I loved the last lines too about the curtain always open in our personal theatre...thanks again.

This is really wonderful. It's true, the blogosphere provides a comfort to writers and artists, who would be so much more isolated otherwise.

I like how you posted your revision too. The second one is so much smoother. It's a testament to the art of editing one's work.

Hi Maria Christina,

I don't know how to write without edits and revisions. I intend to post more edits with my entries in the future because the reality is my first drafts (posted drafts) are usually after a half-dozen rougher drafts, and I typically continue to revise for several more drafts depending on how serious I am about a piece. A habit I learned from a favorite professor who happens to be a huge Dickinson fan, and Dickinson was quite the revisionist. Have I mentioned I am new fan of your work. I read your blog regularly.

Thanks to all for commenting.

I agree with Pia. The words roll of each other.

Wonderful write, Susan. The second revision is the smoothest and the last line is my favorite. Thanks for sharing. Keep up the good work.

Hi Susan. I like the poem and the revision, but I agree with others that the second is a smoother read. And the last light is great.

Thanks for posting the revision.
