Greetings, groovy palmers of poems! De Jackson, aka WhimsyGizmo, here. It’s time again for my all-time favorite of all prompts, the Quadrille. This tiny happy little poem dance is made up of just 44 words, not counting the title, and including one word we here at dVerse provide. Today, I’d like you all to get groovy. 

Tongue and groove. Groovy, baby. Grooving to the beat. Getting into the groove. Shake your groove thing. Noun it. Verb it. Adjective it within an inch of its groovy groover-ific little life. Invent a new word that blows our minds. Whatever you do, just be sure to include some form of the word groove in your poem of just 44 words. 

Whether you get it back, or go out and get a new one, the time is now.  Let’s poem – and how! 

Here’s some groovy musical inspiration: 

{Shake it}…

Peaches & Herb 

{Get into it}…


{It’s got groove, it’s got meaning}…

Frankie Valli

New to the Q? Here’s how to get in the groove: 
Just pen us a poem of precisely 44 words (not counting the title), including some form of the word groove. Link it up by clicking Mr. Linky below. Then get groovin’ around the blogisphere! There are some brilliant poets here at the bar, and you should visit them. This groovy prompt will be open all week, so remember to come back and read (and write) some more. Now get out there and be groovers and shakers!
