Three Brothers

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – July 3rd:  “The Hardest Thing”

“We all face challenges in our lives. It is how we deal with them that shows our mettle! Write about one of the hardest things with which you had to deal. It could be from your far distant past or something as immediate as five minutes ago. No need delving into any “True Confession” here. It was difficult and you survived it!”

Alternatively, write a “hard” poem. Rocks, boulders, bricks and blocks are all hard. A stubborn person is considered “hard headed.”

Three brothers–
one was the smartest
pig. He knew
to build house
you need bricks, not straw or sticks.
His house was sturdy.
Wolf did not succeed
as he had with other two.
Lesson learned–
a brick house
will protect against
Big Bad Wolf.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
