Ready to fire up your pens, Poets? It’s Quadrille Monday, when we write poems of exactly 44 words (not including the title), using one word provided. You may have already guessed, today I want you to be on FIRE, for poetry’s sake. Take your cues from none other than Robert Frost (above), or…
Fired. Fiery. Firing. Afire. Let me stand next to your fire. Fire and ice. We didn’t start the fire. Write about a fire-breathing dragon, or being fired from your last job. Use the word in any form, or as any form of speech you choose. Have fun with hyphens or parentheses. Just be sure some form of the word “fire” is in there. Then fire away!
New to the Q? Here’s what to do:
Fire up your pen and begin! Write us a poem of exactly 44 words, including some semblance of the word fire. Click Mr. Linky below to link up.

And I’ll leave you with some Doors. C’mon Baby Light My Fire.
