Sunday Scribblings #8: Three Wishes

This week's prompt for Sunday Scribblings is: Three Wishes. I decided on this prompt because I have had this poem in my head most of this week. I'm not sure why I can't stop thinking about it, but I do know that that usually means something needs attention. Here is the poem that caused this commotion:

Three Wishes

I keep three wishes ready,

Least I should chance to meet,

Any day a fairy

Coming down the street.


I'd hate to have to stammer,

Or have to think them out,

For it's very hard to think things up

When a fairy is about.


And I'd hate to lose my wishes,

For fairies fly away,

And perhaps I'd never have a chance

On any other day.


So I keep three wishes ready,

Lest I should chance to meet,

Any day a fairy

Coming down the street.


Annette Wynne


So there it is. You could write about what your three wishes would be (and don't go and use one up for more wishes - that's cheating - you really need to think about this one!) Or you could write a story about what happens when someone gets three wishes. You could write about what happens when those wishes don't come true, or when they do, or when you just can't decide on what they should be. But be warned: there is a lot of power in wishing. Use it wisely!

As always, please leave your perma-link in the comments. (That's the link to THAT post, not just to your blog.)

And a short plea - if anyone knows how to create an automatic linking system like Illustration Friday has, please direct us to where we might find that on blogger. With Sunday Scribblings becoming so popular (YAY!!), we find that we are spending a lot of time linking on the weekends. We want to make sure that everyone who wants to can play, so we are looking at new ways of making this work for everyone!

Happy Scribbling!

Can't help with the automatic linking, I'm sorry (I'm technologically challenged, even if I am a blogger)
