not measured in diamonds

A “rich” quadrille shape poem linked to dVerse Poetics…

life rich?
yard mud
sky overcast
farm prices low
spring weather wet
my husband stressed
emotions under pressure
fledglings leaving nest
we look to retirement
son works our farm
cornfields planted
new calves frolic
garden sprouts
life is rich

    Yes, it shows the busyness but overall satisfaction and the hope that comes with spring.

    What a great rich life… the shape of your poem makes me think of a seed.

    A very clever presentation, enjoyed the diamond shape of your poem and the contentment it shares

    I love the shape of your quadrille, Lynn, and the short-lined, list form, which makes it sound very busy – and rich!
