It’s Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie’s Lucky Dip! Today our writing prompt is the Oddquain — a short, usually unrhymed poem consisting of seventeen syllables distributed 1, 3, 5, 7, 1 in five lines, developed by Glenda L. Hand.


You

and I were

never meant to be

but we happened anyway.

Fate.

Hearts

like ours have

their own agenda:

they want you and me to be

Us.

 

The Three Fates’ by Paul Thumann: Clotho-Lachesis-and-Atropos
