3 Word Wednesday prompt

3WW- grace, thin, jittery

For the Love of Sports (A cascade poem)

Grace never wanted to settle down
She much preferred a myriad of men
Spontaneity fueled her lustful desires

Striking: in with looks, out with luck
A playing field, she beat thin scores
Grace never wanted to settle down

Photo trophies saved on hard drives
All the conquests mere victories
She much preferred a myriad of men

The prime of her life, a star athlete
Grace welcomed jitters as basic warm-ups
Spontaneity fueled her lustful desires

Excellent words, and I agree with the above - a great line.

Like Jae, I really like the striking line. Clever write, Laurie.

Yeah, I like the way this stacks up from the bottom - repeating the end line of the first stanza.

Nicely done. I like the repetition, "Grace never wanted to settle down". I wonder if she's trying to convince herself of that the older she gets? Great work.

Great cascade form. Interesting thought, too. I hope Grace has a plan for loneliness later in life.
