Greetings, poetical peeps! De Jackson (aka WhimsyGizmo) here. It’s Quadrille Monday again (my favorite!), when we write poems of exactly 44 words each, including a specific word provided. Today, I want you to muse upon the word muddle:

Use it as a noun, verb or adjective (or abuse it as adverb of your own invention). Invent a superhero (or supervillain!) named The Muddler. Muddle up a poetic cocktail of words with a little lime. Note how adorably it rhymes with cuddle, puddle and befuddle.

If the word still leaves your brain a bit muddled, don’t leave befuddled! Just chop it up and say “my name is mud”…and write us something mud-luscious as spring. Using some semblance of the word, in exactly 44 words, is the thing – and you’ve got this!

{I love this quote! But don’t write us a novel. 44 words only! ;)}

New to the Q? Here’s what to do:
Pen us a poem of exactly 44 words (not counting the title), including some form of the word “muddle.” Hook it up to Mr. Linky below, and then head out into cyberspace to huddle up with some amazing poets as you read their work. The prompt is open all week, so muddle all you want and come back for more!

Now, what can I pour you?Screenshot 2018-05-02 17.40.16
