Introduction

2013

I was not...like the character in Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham, NOT going to participate.

enough was enough...

No green eggs and ham...no 3:15 experiment this year...

But...on August 1st, I woke up and glanced at the clock which read 3:21 (A.M.).  Since it was set five minutes ahead.. that meant it was 3:16.

I didn't set the alarm...and I sometimes will wake up at 1:30 or 4:00 but what are the chances...  3:16 on August 1st.

Obviously I should write a poem and did.

It was...I told myself for old time's sake.  

I didn't set my alarm...but I did put a pad of paper and pen nearby just in case I did so I wouldn't have to get out of bed and find one to write on.

I believe on August 2nd I woke up at about 3:40...no alarm.  close enough.

No alarms, but when I woke up, usually between 2:45 and 4:00 a.m. I wrote a poem.   It happened almost every night despite my refusal to set the alarm and my initial resistance to 3:15 ing.

Resistance was futile.

Pray for me...  

I am doing it again in 2014...(and without an alarm...  if I am destined to write a poem around 3:15 it will happen and I will write...and it has happened most nights this August (2014) too.
