It’s Quadrille time! Mish here with our fave 44 word prompt.

As I sat staring at my rec-room walls the other day apparently waiting for the perfect quadrille word to pop, I thought….hmm……why not?

Why not “knot”?

These outdated walls are begging for some paint and I dread the day I wrestle with concealing each one of those knots.

The word has many possibilities.


verb knots, knotting or knotted

Of course a knot can be ‘a unit of speed equal to one nautical mile per hour’.


You can play with knotless, slipknot, knotless, unknot, knotty, knottier, knotlike, knotholes. You can even interknot and reknot. Feeling the love knot? Aww, go ahead and tie the knot.

I dare you to use pseudoknot.

So be knot afraid. Incorporate the word “knot‘ or a form of the word into your poem. Remember that a quadrille can be any style, but must be exactly 44 words, and …yes knot including the title.
