De Jackson here (aka WhimsyGizmo), and it’s Quadrille Monday here at dVerse. And lookit what we did! We made it to Quadrille #44! Since a Quadrille is a poem of exactly 44 words, using one word we provide, it’s pretty cool to reach the 44-word benchmark. (And for those of you who attempt to write what we call The Ones With All The Words, it might be time to get out your hyphens.)

Today, let’s give our 44th Quadrille a little extra kick.
Kicking, kicked, kick, kick-butt, kickback.
Kick it into high gear. Do some high kicks, or some kickboxing. Get your kicks on Route 66. Maybe somebody kicked the bucket. Or maybe they just kicked back. Say “nice kicks!” (My teens tell me this means shoes.)

If none of these forms kickstart your muse, then make up your own words. What would a kickle be? What about a kick-caphony?

Poem us up something with a little kick to it. The rest is up to you. Just make sure your poem is precisely 44 words long, and literally contains some form of the word kick.



New to the Q? Here’s what to do:
Just write a poem of exactly 44 words, including some form of the word kick. Get creative if you’d like, but please be sure the word “kick” 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 kick back right here in 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!
