It’s over, done
We cheer and root
Grabbing all the Absolute
How we’ve anticipated
For this fine date
All the ways we’d celebrate
Turn to vapors
All troubles we carried
Much better friends than married
dVerse ~ Poets Pub | Quadrille #155—Let’s Celebrate
Merril hosts at dVerse and wants us to “celebrate” in a quadrille.
Some couples do celebrate their divorce amicably.
A Quadrille is simply a poem of 44 words, excluding the title. It can be in any form, rhymed or unrhymed, metered, or unmetered. You MUST use the word “celebrate”, or some form of the word, in your poem.
That’s amazing you can! Shows you are truly meant to be friends! 🥂
It’s wonderful to celebrate friendship–even if the marriage didn’t work. I agree with Tricia!
That may be the best way to be – just friends. Thanks for joining in.!
how lucky to be able to remain friends with a former spouse! well done, Raivenne!
If they are both happy with the new arrangement, that truly is cause for celebration.
What I love about this post is that you talk about the dissolution of a marriage, but you remind us that it doesn’t have to come with the dissolution of the relationship itself. That’s maturity of a really high order – to recognize that this is a person that one can’t be married to, but still has enough human qualities that you can remember what makes them wonderful as well. Thanks, Raivenne, for a post that made me smile (and maybe redeemed humanity by just an inch).
This is so poignant! It’s always a relief when former spouses can remain friends afterwards.
