Helloooo, amazing poets!

De Jackson here, aka WhimsyGizmo, shining a little light on my personal favorite of our promptings here at dVerse, the Quadrille. If you’re new to the crew, all you need to know is that a Quadrille is a poem form of our own creation: exactly 44 words, with or without rhyme (or reason), containing one word we provide.

Today, I’d like you to close your eyes and wish upon a star.

Starstruck, starry eyed, falling star, superstar, all-star, rockstar, Starbucks, starshine, star power, movie star, stardust.

Did you know a flock of starlings is called a murmuration? How poetical is that?

I love the idea of stars as the trinkets of moon’s belt…I bet Orion would agree.

Some musical inspiration:
(You can take the girl out of the 80s, but you can’t take the 80s out of the girl…)

Need a Q Review? Here’s what to do:
Pen a poem of precisely 44 words, not counting the title, including some form of the word star. Post your poem on your own blog and share your link using the Mr. Linky below. Then shoot around to read the work of other poet superstars. The prompt is up through Friday, so be sure to come back and read – and write – some more!

Now: off you “Gogh.”
