must be her orange hair

Join Victoria at dVerse poets’ pub as she interviews one of our founders, Claudia, and challenges us to write a sevenling!

invite friends from upstairs

mix chill drinks with a flair

offer fresh dijon pears

how she tickles the keys

recites free verse with ease

painting art on a breeze


while her deaf dog sleeps soundly under the chair.

    This is such a surprise ending. I love The Whimsy and perhaps the little dog is lucky he can’t hear. Very nicely done.

    Maybe you need your dog to be deaf… there is a complete story in your words.
