Greetings, my profound and potent poeming friends! De Jackson here, aka WhimsyGizmo. You made it! You survived the changing of the calendar page over into another year. It’s the first Quadrille Monday of 2019 (when we write poems of exactly 44 words including one word we provide), and today I want us to chatter a bit about the word change.
The changing of the guards. Spare change. Positive change. Change your clothes. Change your attitude. Change your life. Changed. Changeability. Changing. You could even go a little creepy on us, and write about a changeling. Whatever you write, just be sure it’s 44 words, and includes some alteration of the word change.
New to the Q? Here’s what to do:
When it comes to the rules of the Quadrille, nothing’s changed. It’s still simply a poem of precisely 44 words (not counting the title), including one word we provide. In today’s case, that means some form of the word change. And yes, you can still play with any form of the word, have fun with hyphens, or invent a metamorphosis of the word we’ve never seen.
Once you’ve written your 44-word piece, link up to Mr. Linky below, visit some awesome fellow poets, and drop us a line in the comments: any big changes for you in 2019?
Change is good.
I’ll leave you with a little Bowie:
