iThee

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about marriage: "We" is impenetrable.

Trifextra Week Thirty-One:

Robert Frost one said, "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on."  We want you to do the same.  Sum up anything you want, but do it in three words.  Your response should mirror Frost's quote by beginning, "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about--."  And the last four words are yours to choose.

  1. Ooh! That is kickass. Mine is so obvious I don't even want to post it, but I guess I will. I LOVE yours, though.

  2. Your title is so clever. "I thee [wed]." If after the wedding the "i" is small and the "Thee" is big, there can be a problem. If you are making yourself small and putting someone else first, it can be a good thing. Or it can turn around and bite you in the butt. It depends on perspective and how things play out over time. But the main point is that if you always remain separate, but smushed together ... "iThee" can be broken apart when something starts poking around in the middle. But if you completely alter the components, getting rid of both the "i" and the "Thee," forming one new entity ("we"), then you may have something impenetrable. As long as you don't revert to former separated selves somewhere down the road.

    This is very thought provoking, as poetry should be. And this prompt clearly illustrates the fact that three or four words can be packed with meaning. In poetry (and most other things), less is often more.

  5. As stated. This is very thought provoking. I think there can be a "we", so long as there is a balance with "I" and "you". Everything goes out of whack without the balance. Great take.

  7. I love this. If the "we" isn't impenetrable, you know sumpin's not right.
