NaPoWriMo – Day 15

NaPoWriMo challenged participants  “to write a poem that incorporates the idea of doubles. You could incorporate doubling into the form, for example, by writing a poem in couplets. Or you could make doubles the theme of the poem, by writing, for example, about mirrors or twins, or simply things that come in pairs.”  So, I wrote this.  😉

Three Cheers to things that come in sets of tri

Three little pigs

And billy goats gruff

Three sneezes will do,

When two’s not enough

Petals, unfolding

To lure in the bees

Strands of a braid

That goes down to her knees

Two birds in the bush

Plus the one in the hand

Lines of haiku

Written freehand

Traffic lights

In red, green, and yellow

Sheets to the wind

Or just a little mellow

Steps in a waltz

Bones in the ear

Rings in a binder

To keep papers dear

Rings of a circus

Larry, Curly, Moe

Strikes to be out

It’s time to go
