Greetings, intrepid poets! De Jackson here, aka WhimsyGizmo. It’s Quadrille Monday (my favorite!), when we write a poem of exactly 44 words, including a provided word.

Today, I want us to DREAM together.

Dream a little dream with me. Go California dreamin’. Or maybe you’re more of a dream on…dream on…dream until your dream comes true kind. Put on a dreamy tune, and ponder your dream. Go vivid, or vague. Use the word as a noun, adjective or verb, or in any of its forms (dreamy, dreaming, daydream.) When she was still tiny, my daughter once said, “Mommy, wasn’t that so dreambly?” (If you’d like to invent an adverb of your own, please, be my guest!) Whatever you do, just be sure your poem is precisely 44 words long, not including the title, and use some form of the word dream.

New to the Q? Here’s what to do:
Just write a poem of precisely 44 words, including the word dream. Link it up by clicking Mr. Linky. Then daydream your way around the blogisphere, and visit some ethereal talent. The prompt is open for the whole week, so remember to come back and read (and write!) some more!

And while you’re here, comment below and say hello, maybe let us know what you’ve been up to this summer (if it’s summer in your neck of the woods.) I spent most of July in dreamy Lake Tahoe, and I’m still in mourning. Tell me somethin’ good.
