365 Writing Prompts: History of Language

Write a piece of fiction describing the incident that gave rise to the phrase, “third time’s the charm.”

Monica had a beautiful garden, she had flowers, apples, strawberries growing in her garden,but she could not grow raspberries.

Monica thought may be the soil was not good enough, she changed it, no luck, she asked her friend, but did not get a satisfactory answer.

She was not ready to give up just yet she changed the spot and did everything to get raspberries growing in her garden, it did not help, she was ready to give up trying .

She decided one more time, this time she got in touch with a horticulturist, she explained what her problem was, he understood the problem she was going through, his reply was, “Did you try to change the seeds?”

Suddenly Monica realized she hadn’t done that, she got fresh seeds from the nursery, within a short time she saw signs of raspberries.

Well she thought , “third time’s the  charm.”

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this very nice poem. We like the tone of the “third time’s the charm,” that of perseverance and patience.

    All good wishes,
