And the cure for writer’s block? The Quadrille! 

Greetings, my fellow wordsmiths! De Jackson here, aka WhimsyGizmo, and curiously enough, it’s already time for my favorite prompt again, the Quadrille, a poetic creation of our own making right here at dVerse. The rules of the Q are simple: pen us a poem of exactly 44 words, not counting the title, and including one word we provide. 

Today, I want you to get curious. Let your curiosity get the best of your muse. I hope that you are curiously intrigued. Yes, for this week’s poem, take any form of the word curiosity you wish, and plant it firmly in your piece. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but today it’s going to build the poem. So open up your favorite curio cabinet of most fabulous words and phrases, and have a ball. 

Still need some inspiration? When all else fails, ask Alice. 

New to the Q and still curious what to do?  
Just compose us a poem of exactly 44 words, not counting the title, and including some form of the word CURIOSITY(curious, curiousness, curiouser, etc). Post it on your own blog, and then link up using Mr. Linky below. Once your poem is written, be sure to explore the delightful and curious worlds of other poets’ blogs. The Q is up all week long, so be sure to let your curiosity get the best of you, and come back for another visit! 

{PS: Please note, no cats were harmed in the making of this prompt.} 😉 

To get all our muses’ (iambic, or not) feet tapping, here’s a little something called “Curious Thing,” by the Gin Blossoms.
