In the early hours
As the dawn does rise
Rain had fallen deep
As I lay in sleep
And soaked the dark earth
Awake now I breathe
The petrichor scent
Deep in the city
A moment of Zen
My window garden
Belies urban sprawl
dVerse Poets Pub | Quadrille: How Does Your Garden Grow?
At dVerse Victoria wants to know about our gardens in a quadrille.
A Quadrille is a poem of exactly 44 words not including the title. The poem must contain the prompt word for the challenge: Garden.
And because Muse likes to combine challenges I wrapped the Quadrille in a Tableau. (Or is that wrapped the Tableau in a Quadrille? You decide.)
Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie| Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 8 August 2020
For this week’s Lucky Dip, the mystery bag gives us a Tableau.
The Tableau, a poetry form created by Emily Romano in October of 2008, consists of one or more verses, each having six lines. Each line should have five beats. There is no set rhyme scheme, although rhyme may be present. The title should contain the word tableau.
