De Jackson here, aka WhimsyGizmo. Feels like ages since I’ve been with all of you. Between summer travel and paying writing work, I haven’t had much time to do the type of writing I love best: poetry.
That’s why I’m happy to be hosting Quadrille Monday today, as we pen poems of just 44 words (not counting the title) and including one word we provide for you. Shortform poetry is just my type. And in case you haven’t already guessed, today I want you to play with some form of the word type in your piece: typing, typed, typewriter, typography, typist.Archetypal. Type it up in italics, or bold. Regale us about your favorite type of food, or music. Are you a type A personality, or type B? Are you the type who loves to rhyme? Or will you tippity-tap type us something free verse? Whatever type of poem you choose, make it exactly 44 words, and slip some form of the word type in there.
New to the Q? Here’s what to do:
Type us up a poem of precisely 44 words, including some form of the word type. Link it up by clicking Mr. Linky below. Then make your way around to the other posts, to discover the type of incredible poets you’ll only find right here at dVerse. The prompt is open for the whole week, so remember to come back and read (and type) some more! Now, forget all the hype. Just type.
Here are some fun poems using the word typewriter.
