The Power of Three

Trifextra: Week Eighty-Seven   

Congratulations to this week's winners!  And, on to the weekend challenge, (they said have fun...)

This weekend we're asking for 33 of your own words about a famous trio. The trio could be from literature, from history or from pop culture. Just make it yours and have fun with it. Good luck! - See more at:

Those three bright stars,
Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka.
They hold Orion's sword close to hand.

Just imagine, if instead
it were Wynken, Blynken, and Nod 
in charge of keeping those belt loops manned. 


  1. YOU, YOU!!! are wonderful.
    this was inspired and almost whimsical. I love when you teach me something in your wonderful words.

    TGIF my friend. XOX

  2. I know Orion by sight, and even his dog but I didn't know the individual stars responsible for his sword AND keeping his pants up. Loved it!

  3. Clever use of the names. And whimsical to boot.

  4. fun one - and the little underhanded rhyme is perfect

  5. Orion and Wynken, Blynken, and Nod! Perfect!

  6. Glorios.. how imaginative... wonder if Orion's trousers would drop

  7. I'm very impressed that you pulled this off with so few words. Great job with the prompt. Don't forget to vote!

  8. Wow - I absolutely *loved* this. Not only is it beautifully written, but it has inspired me to think about the stars as personalities, and as such, subjects of stories. I love that!
