Quadrille Monday #166 d’Verse Poets- Echoes of Love

Let’s sweeten up our quadrilles, shall we? Pop a bit of candy into your poem. Use it as a noun, verb or adjective. As always, the theme and style of your poem is open. Just remember your quadrille should be exactly 44 words, not including the title and include the word “candy” or a derivative of the word.

Everlasting memories of innocent first love
Sing to old romantic hearts.
Once confectionary kisses echo a tune
With an intimate rhythm lifting our aging souls.

Addled breathless waves,
Sweet as candy.
Sweep the present toward long-ago moments
Inspired by melodies written just for us.


44-words

This song not only compliments today’s theme but it also still curls my toes. 😉

d’Verse Poets Pub- Quadrille Monday- Grand New Mood

Welcome to the dVerse Poets Pub with me, Kim from Writing in North Norfolk, and another Quadrille Monday, when we take any meaning of one word and transform it into 44 poetic words.

Today we have a little word that resonates and tinkles: bell.


Grand New Mood
{A triolet quadrille}

This grand new mood is lighter.
Ring, ring, ring, the joyful bell.
Darker times got brighter.
This grand new mood is lighter.
My gifted hugs much tighter,
The grace of feeling well.
This grand new mood is lighter.
Ring, ring, ring, the joyful bell.

Some travel roads
Or follow streams,
Climbing hills,
And chasing dreams.

These ‘ins’ and ‘outs’
And winding trails.
Offer many
Varied tales.

A few shake off,
This wonderment,
Of trusting kismet
Heaven sent.

They travel tracks
From A to B,
Knowing well
Their destiny.

…make sure your piece contains some form of the word punch and comes in at exactly 44 words total.


He loved correcting grammar
His eyebrows always shocked
And never missed a second
Resetting every clock.

More worthy than the next man
Such a perfect man
Oblivious to rolling eyes
Himself his only fan

He’d never ‘get’ the punchline
‘Cuz Aaron IS the joke.

Rising at dawn,
Breathing in peacefulness,
Your thankful habit
Of poignant pause.

In vital company of
One moment wholly natural.
-Alertness alive-
Everything greeting nothing.

Nebulous doubts of
Reward obscured by honesty,
Fortune occupies the morning.
Where tepid souls awaken
To all things possible.

Quadrille #157- What’s your type?- Purloined Perfection

Whatever type of poem you choose, make it exactly 44 words, and slip some form of the word type in there. 

Elmer found a lady,
Above all trendy hype.
SO Purty!
…just his type

She never took to gossip
Cooked his favorite, tripe.
Loved a-huntin’
…just his type

Wouldn’t say he loved her.
Man, he always griped!
She vanished all a-sudden.
Figured she got swiped.
