De Jackson here (WhimsyGizmo), and it’s Quadrille Monday here at dVerse, when we write a poem of exactly 44 words, including a given word.

For those of you who don’t know, I am a Las Vegan. And right now, in addition to prayers and healing, my city is in need of a little hope.

Today, write us a poem of hope. Of hopefulness. Or hopelessness. Or any form of the word therein that you choose. Invent your own word if you like: hope-itude, hope-iosity, hope-ortunity. Just make sure your poem is precisely 44 words long (not including the title), and literally contains some form of the word hope.


New to the Q? Here’s what to do:
Just write a poem of precisely 44 words, including some form of the word hope. Get creative if you’d like, but please be sure the word “hope” is in there somewhere, and that your poem adds up to exactly 44 words, not including the title. Link it up by clicking Mr. Linky. Then hop(e) your way around the blogisphere to visit some amazing poets. The prompt is open for the whole week, so remember to come back and read (and write!) some more!
