slightly cracked


you may

call me egg-head

for trying to write a

spring quadrille of eggs

-actly forty-four words (now

you know that forty-four counts

as one word, right?) and also for

making this poem egg-shaped,

(simply eggs-ceptional) just

don’t egg me on to pen

more yolks!




Kim hosts an “egg” quadrille prompt for dVerse Poets this week before Easter…

time swiftly passes






write now

past is past

today is here

carpe some diem

a fresh new year begins

the time to do it …is now !



i call my form a “sevenzi”:  seven lines working up to seven syllables

(after playing “tenzi” dice game with friends New Year’s Day)
