(Is the New Year noisy enough for you yet?)
Between the cacophony of politics and the crazy weather, the tyranny of back-to-normal life and the buzzing of the too-early-morning alarm clock, I am ready for some quiet.

Won’t you join me?

De Jackson (WhimsyGizmo) here, and today, for our beloved Quadrille, let’s softly sneak in the word whisper. Or shout it. Noun it. Verb it. Slip it an extra letter or two to make it an adjective or adverb: whispered, whispery, whispering, whisperingly (bonus points if you can make that last one sound good, ever.) And you know I always love a well-placed hyphen, should you want to play around with it a little.

Here are a couple of whispered poem bits, for inspiration:

New to the Q? Here’s what to do:
Just write a poem of precisely 44 words, including the word whisper. Link it up by clicking Mr. Linky. Then share the best kept secret around: there are some brilliant poets here at the Bar, and you should visit them! The prompt is open for the whole week, so remember to come back and read (and write) some more.
