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.

Quadrille #94: Roar

The first poem is my entry of 44 words:

The Roar of the World 

When the roar of the world for you is just deafening 

And you cannot think of a place that you’d rather be 

Then find some solace, more peace, and pure comfort 

In the arms of a loved one is where you would find me.  


This second poem is the first one I wrote but with too many words for this challenge!

The Roar of the World

If the roar of the crowd is too loud  
And the peep of a mouse much too soft,  
Maybe you just need to be  
In bed up in a warm loft.  
When the roar of silence is deafening  
And the breeze that blows is too strong  
Maybe you just need to be  
In bed with a blanket and song.  
When the roar of the world is just perfect  
And there’s no place that you’d rather be  
Then get out of bed just this moment  
For there’s no profit for the lazy. 

Quadrille #93: Spirit

Your Spirit

Before birth it is there, 
in the heavens waiting. 
After death it resumes its place 
amongst the other spirits who 
have also gone. 
It will remain there  
until all of it’s world is together 
in one natural place 
living solely in peace 
united forever.  

dVerse – Quadrille #91 – keep

Kim from Writing in North Norfolk is today’s host of dVerse.  Kim says:
This week I’d like you to take any meaning, form or compound of the word keep, and write a poem of exactly 44 words (not counting your title), including the prompt word.

My sleeping beverage 

When I go to sleep 

I often like to keep 

Water by my side 

My mouth feels very dried. 

The water that I pour 

Is not like those before 

It has a little twist 

A sort of liquid mist. 

Do you get my gist?
