Third Sentence Thursday is a meme created by Thatswhatsheread
(Take any book you are reading and flick to a random page. Share the third full sentence from that page with the blogosphere as a “taster” of the book! You can also share your thoughts about the sentence (does it affect the novel? did you like the language used? was it so short that it adds suspense?) It’s a fun, fast way to offer your readers a ‘snapshot’ of a particular book.)
I’m currently reading I shall not be Moved by Maya Angelou, so instead of a sentence I chose a random poem, and I’ll share three stanzas from that poem.
Poem: Human Family,
I’ve sailed upon the seven seas
and stopped in every land,
I’ve seen the wonders of the world,
not yet one common man.
I know ten thousand women
called Jane and Mary Jane,
but I’ve never seen any two
who really were the same.
Mirror twins are different
although their features jibe,
and lovers think quite different thoughts
while lying side by side.
I hadn’t read the poem before choosing it, but Wow, so far it’s my favorite of the bunch.
