Written for dVerse Poet’s Pub: https://dversepoets.com/2022/04/04/dverse-monday-quadrille-149-tis-the-season/

So… here we are, at the season of poem writing. Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to pen a poem of precisely 44 words (not counting the title), including some form of the word season.

Welcome Spring

When winter is over
And spring has begun
The seasons are changing
New webs will be spun
New life will be made
New hope will be had
These are the dreams
Sunshine from sad

Clouds will change to fluff
Buds will change to blooms

My Eyes

With my own eyes I see a spot
not in my head, oh no it’s not
It’s in my room, above the door
I see it float above my floor.
It floats around, this way and that
Here in 3-D it is not flat!

Quadrille #130

“smudge”.

as a verb:

to cause (something) to become messily smeared by rubbing it.

Inside

Within the small walls
confined to a tiny place
there resides a fear
that exists only here
willing itself
to escape

Within the small walls
witnessed on an empty wall
a dark smudge of ink
making one think
that someone
wanted to get out

Fix: quadrille #104

For d’Verse Poets Pub: https://dversepoets.com/ and De Jackson at https://dversepoets.com/author/whimsygizmo/

Maybe it’s me

If I thought about you  
 
And how I’d fix your ways  
 
I’d start with all my visions  
 
Of you these past few days.  
 
Were you even happy?  
 
Did you say some grace?  
 
Maybe it is me needs fixin’ 
 
Here around this cold, dark place.

Super silly sammy

Super silly Sammy 
loved to take a bath. 
He loved to use his bubbles 
He’d count them using math. 

One day silly Sammy  
ran out of liquid soap 
He tried to use the bar kind 
but man, he couldn’t cope. 

Bar soap doesn’t bubble.

Hey there, Poets-in-Residence! De Jackson (aka WhimsyGizmo) here. It’s Quadrille Monday again (my favorite!)…when we pen poems of exactly 44 words (not counting the title), including one specific word provided.

Open your Heart

Close the door to sickness 
open your heart to appreciation. 

Close your eyes to pessimism 
open your heart to optimism. 

Close your mouth to negativity 
open your heart to positive thinking. 

Close your ears to bad news 
open your heart to faith and hope.
