(Season’s) Greetings, my poetic friends! De Jackson (aka WhimsyGizmo) here, and it’s time once again for my favorite poeming prompt, the Quadrille. Did you know the Q is an original dVerse creation? A Quadrille is simply a poem of precisely 44 words, not counting the title, and including one word that we here at dVerse provide. And today, in the spirit of the season, I want you to ponder and play with the word spirit.
Drink in this inspiration, and pour us a powerful spirit poem cocktail. Or go ghostie with it. Get into the spirit of the holidays. Is your muse a restless spirit? Write about it! Use it as an adjective: spiritual, or spirited (lively, full of energy). Spirit can even be a verb: to convey rapidly and secretly.
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 spirit. Post your poem on your blog, and link it up with Mr. Linky below. Then sprint about the blogisphere to read some of the finest poets around.
And drop us a line in the comments to say hi. How are you getting in the spirit of the season?
