Greetings, poeming friends! De Jackson, aka WhimsyGizmo here.
It’s that time again: Quadrille Monday, when we write and share poems of exactly 44 words, using one word we here at dVerse provide.
Today, I want us to make a little Stone (Poem) Soup.
Leave no stone unturned. Stonewall us. Take us back to the Stone Age. Visit Stonehenge. Get stoned, and then write your poem (no judgement here). Stony. Stoning. A stone’s throw away. Listen to the Rolling Stones, and make sure your poem gathers no moss as you roll it our way. There are a million ways to play, so long as you set your poem in stone, and use only 44 words in total.
Here’s a little stone-spiration…
Papa Was A Rolling Stone, The Temptations
New to the Q? Here’s what to do:
Carve us a poem out of the word stone, and make it precisely 44 words long, not counting the title. Post the poem on your own blog and link up with us using the Mr. Linky below. Then partake of all the amazing poem stones thrown about the blogisphere. Some of the most incredible poets reside right here. The Q is open all week long, so be sure to roll back in and read (and write) some more!
