A Quadrille for dVerse Poets

A Quadrille for dVerse Poets
Babylonian Locust Weight, British Museum

The Overnight Rain

It lingers
on the bright morning.
A slight shade.
From twigs.
From the nape of grass.
It fills my nose with wet.

The fox was
in the flower pots again.
Wounded pansies
like stars, and
a grasshopper watched
as I rearranged nature.

  1. A most phenomenal image as accompaniment to this gem, Misky! I love; “Wounded pansies strewn like stars.”💝💝


  2. These words “From the nape of grass.” and that final stanza! You truly have a magical way with words, description, and scene setting. I truly think you are one of the most creative writers I know! 🙂 LOVE this post!
    Poor pansies….
