My Ship and Me
ship comes in
Gems and valuables
wharf I'll park
my needs and whims
Give away the rest
my own hall
friends can have a ball
We'll dance--night be gone

Her challenge: The number of the day is three. Throughout time and across cultures, the number three has been held as significant. As it relates to writing, it's pretty simple, really.
Three is more satisfying to a reader than two. Three stanzas, three adjectives, three examples of something . . . three paragraphs, three elements, three rhymes . . . see what I mean? Play with the rule of three in any way you like . . . just keep it to 90 words or less.
I wrote three Senryū (definition) stanzas; 17 syllables each X 3 = 51; 3 lines per stanza X 3 = 9; but best of all only 45 words, half of her maximum (please note, I did not count the title, by the time I decided what it would be I had already counted everything).
