Hey everyone! Mish here bringing you this week’s quadrille prompt.
The weather in my part of the woods has been very unpredictable. Winter coats one day, summer shorts the next. Welcome to my world of sun, rain and snow served with a side of drizzle.
I will share a bit of that with you today, giving you the word drizzle.
Use it as a noun, verb or be creative and get drizzly. Dabble in words about the weather, share a drizzle of your emotions or give us your best recipe drizzled in lemon icing or olive oil. The mood can be a drizzling of darkness or light. It’s up to you! Just remember your quadrille should be exactly 44 words in total not including the title and must include the word drizzle or a derivative of the word.
Here’s how to join in:
- Write a poem of 44 words including the word drizzle and post it to your blog.
- Click on Mr. Linky to add your name and direct URL to your poem.
- Drop by the pub to say hello.
- Visit other poets to read and comment.
- Spread the word on social media with the #dVersePoets hashtag.
- Have fun!
Happy Quadrille Monday folks!!! Mish will be in shortly but in the meantime, enjoy writing to our delicious word – DRIZZLE!
I came home early today! Thanks for your support when I can’t. 🙂
Enjoyed this week’s quadrille challenge!
Hi diana…welcome! So glad you could join in. 🙂
diana..there was a problem with your url on Mr.Linky. It did not take us to your poem or blog. I deleted it and linked you up correctly. All is well now.
This has happened before, maybe I’m doing something wrong? Sorry about that
No worries, diana. Not sure what you did, but it displayed the background of the dverse site. Anyways…to walk you through it…after you click on Mr.Linky and put it your name, you also would need to have copied the url from the page that your poem is on in your blog, then paste it into Mr.Linky. Hope this helps. Just let us know if you have trouble again when doing a prompt. We’ll be glad to fix it. 🙂
Ah! I see now! Thanks x
Welcome quadrille lovers…
Just drove home with a drizzle of rain, but the sun is shining now! 🙂
Weather has been fantastic over the weekend, with today’s temp at spring time ~ Thanks Mish for hosting!
Yes, it is beautiful here too. 🙂 My crocuses are up and happy.
Happy Monday, Grace! I hope that you’ve not had any drizzle today as you’ll be seeing a lot of it this evening! I’m going to post in between doing a couple of things but will be back to read more later.
Happy Monday Kim! Just spring drizzle but I would rather have this than snow! See you in the poetry trail~

I’ll take a drizzle to a hurricane any day. A hurricane is all about destruction, but a drizzle gives instant restoration. Where I live, the weather is unpredictable as well … hot as Hades for a few hours, then flood waters later in the day. It’s crazytown down here. 🙂
Wow, emilie…I am grateful that things are a little calmer here for the most part. Definite contrasts of seasons in my area but we mostly fear ice storms, blizzard conditions and the odd tornado.
Thanks for joining in. 🙂
I wrote the first draft of mine while walking wondering what to write about and then finished it back at the computer. I realized there was a bit of a difference between the two drafts.
I’m sure the final result is great…will be by soon to read. 🙂

I cheated a little. I had to stick to my 30-word-poem challenge for NaPoWriMo, but wanted to write a Quadrille with the given word. 😉
Well that sounds interesting, Linda. Nice to see you! 🙂
Hey Y’all! Nice to see everyone in the bar tonight! Bar-Keep, it seems appropriate to order a London Fog for this event 😉 I’m not sure how, exactly, but I managed to blend 3, count ’em, 3 prompts. Whew! I do love April – makes me work for it. Cheers! Jilly
Quite the challenge, jilly! One London Fog coming right up…you deserve it. 🙂
Hi Mish, happy to see you here. This was once of the lines from the book that left a mark on me, how he saw her as something more than she was, an enigma onto herself he finally admits at the end of the book. I love that you quote Green as your prelude into the quadrille.
Hi Singledust, I am ashamed to say I have not read the book yet, but it is on a list of things to buy for my next getaway. 🙂
John Green is an amazing writer, I fell in love with Paper towns first and then bought all his books! He takes you on a journey and you never know how your soul comes out at the end. Her story, his story, it becomes your story at the end. I hope you get to read it! It was so weird because I was going through my journal yesterday and read this one line you quoted. then seeing it again this morning (for me on the equator) was like dejavu!
You’ve convinced me, Singledust! Ordering on amazon. I was very drawn to the quote.
My pleasure Mish! Hope you enjoy it and I would love to know your thoughts on it after you do! enjoy!

I accidentally posted my name twice on the linky…is there a way I can fix that?
Yes,Rachel. I will fix it. 🙂

Thank you Mish!
Drizzle fo shizzle my nizzle
Better than getting yourself in a tizzle. Welcome erbiage! 🙂
Thanks for the prompt, Mish. That was my feeble attempt to be hip. I tried to keep it up for the full forty four words but failed, fell flat. So I started building with what I had… Might have had more luck with zz top. Now it’s time for me to go, drile I’ll leave for you all, I’m off to get more ZZ’s

Evening all…i’m late in tonight..been busy redesigning my blog to link with other stuff I do, so will get to writing now. Love me a bit of drizzle.
I get leery about redesigning my blog, afraid to lose something, but I think it is need of a change. See you on the poetry trail. 🙂
paul scribbles said:
There shortly Mish.
Hey, y’all! Good to be here for Quadrille night. I always enjoy the atmosphere.
Hi Charley! Nice to see you. 🙂 Not so drizzly today in southern Ontario, we made it into the 70’s. Looking forward to reading your poem.

A rain poem from me… Not the most original idea, but hope you will enjoy it.
Drizzle in its literal form, nothing wrong with that! Will be round soon to read, Crystal. 🙂
Good Evening, The weather was warm here today and I guess my muse decided to write with a warm pen. I’ll be around for a bit tonight and back tomorrow to read.
I’m back on the poetry trail tonight. Looking forward to reading yours, Truedessa. We’ve had some warmer days recently. Today, a no jacket day. Yay!
I wish it would rain.
I would love to share ours, crow. Thanks for joining in. 🙂
Love love loved this word. Late to the party tonight, because I’m in Lake Tahoe on spring break with family. Will be around to read in the morning. Happy Quadrille-ing, all!
On the trail tonite to read more…including yours…can’t wait. Enjoy your family time! 🙂 I think I do need to see that lake.

Made it to the quadrille from GMT +8. 🙂
No worries, Colin. The quadrille prompt stays open for a week. Welcome!
emilie jung said:
Thanks for joining us, emilie. 🙂
Nice prompt. Drizzle me something golden into a glass, please.
Oh Sarah, sending you a french vanilla latte drizzled with caramel. Sorry it’s a bit late. Nice to see you. 🙂 Will be by soon to read your poem.
Hi! Is it spring yet? I think it is here, We’ve had our usual spring dust storms, but tomorrow may be thunderstorms. At least it’s warm. Looking forward to reading y’all’s drizzle poems! 🙂
Hi Barbara….wow, from dust storms to thunderstorms is quite the contrast. I’ll be around soon to read. 🙂
It is a crazy time of the year for weather, being it’s so changeable. Thanks, Mish for hosting. Drizzle is a fun word. 🙂
Thanks for the prompt Mish. I had fun with this one, a word I might not normally use unless inspired by a rainfall. I ended up doing a double acrostic using a different type of drizzling.,
I am intrigued. Looking forward to the read. Thanks for joining in. 🙂
It looks like you linked up your poem twice by mistake. I will remove one from Mr.Linky. 🙂
I combined this with today’s NaPoWriMo prompt. 🙂
