Let’s dance with some shadows today, my poetical peeps. This is De Jackson, aka WhimsyGizmo, and it’s Quadrille Monday here at the bar – when we write a poem of exactly 44 words (not including title), and include one given word.

Today, I want you to play with the word: echo.


Make it a noun, a verb, or an adjective. Get creative with it. Make your whole poem one big echo, or slip it in there somewhere quietly. And yes, you can use echoes, echoing, etc.

Need some inspiration? Here are a few quotes, and an Echo and the Bunnymen tune:

New to the Q? Here’s what to do:
Just write a poem of precisely 44 words, including the word echo. Link it up by clicking Mr. Linky below. Then follow the poetic echoes around the blogisphere, as you visit some of the most talented poets around. The prompt is open for the whole week, so remember to come back and read (and write!) some more!
