Now, a Quadrille

Written for Quadrille #50 at dVerse where the word is: “murmur”.




Words graft to wind

murmuring realities

she’d rather ignore

as she’s done before.

Insistence drives the breeze,

her life’s mosaic a tapestry

of shoulds but didn’ts

reasoned away with frayed

logic, she accepts. Skeletal limbs

sway, knobby wood fingers point

time to be brave.

    reasoned away with frayed logic, she accepts”… You have a lovely way with words!💖

  2. Interesting parallel with the words “frayed logic” and “be brave.” It suggests, to be brave despite this logic, and anyways. Great quadrille 🙂
