Viv’s sewing group

A blether of female friends
gathered round a well-laid table,
nattering, laughing,
filling faces with cake,
sipping tea and gossip –
this is how we
gratify our  need
for company,
satisfy our greed.

The Trifecta challenge this week is to use the word SATISFY in exactly a piece containing 33 words, using this definition: 3a : to make happy please ;   or 3b : to gratify to the full : appease.  I’m in the writing doldrums, and this was the best I could come up with.



All poetry, prose and pictures posted here, except where otherwise stated, is my own, and may only be used elsewhere with my expressed permission. Please don't be inhibited from correcting my bloopers and making suggestions: Most of what I post here is instant, ill-considered and off-the-cuff, in serious need of editing.

    You stitch and Bitch to scratch your social itch. Nice piece.

    I like the strong sense of community in this- and the rhyming of gratify our need/satisfy our greed 🙂


  6. This is great, you capture the energy and need of companionship here wonderfully. Thanks for linking up!


  7. I too love this–I miss having a group like this–to knit with and maybe quilt with

    VIv, this is great! This could be any sewing circle, book club, gaming group, or writer’s workshop, where the community and conversation is as important – if not more – than the actual purpose of the group.
