copper penny fountains {in which she finally uses all the words to describe something other than the moon}



With storm breath and flickered fear,
we open journey-jars, spill-skip dream
-coins into bubbled shadows. Dance a
wish, lull-curl-whispered across spring-surface.

The echo-sound’s a cued breeze,
melted shimmer-grin-ghost. A boast-giggle,
drizzled-green dawn. The twist leaves sparks,
still-twisted scars that pepper-cloud our longing.

Balloon economy,
rising.

    “Ballon economy rising” is great. But I like “open journey-jars” even better.

    Love the word play De ~ This is my favorite: The twist leaves sparks,
    still-twisted scars that pepper-cloud our longing.

  3. Waltermarks says:

    Well, somehow you also used all the words and made an interesting interplay of images in my mind.

  4. Love the title – but I’m sure there is a moon somewhere still.

    Stunning title and stunning Quadrille!

  6. I love all the words. 🙂 I admire each of my fellow poets who do that, but haven’t rustled up the nerve myself. Well done, a fast-paced Q here.

    Wonderful use of all the words. My favorite is “spill-skip dream-coins”.

  8. Sumana Roy says:

    Nice use of all the Quadrille words.

    Such a delight! I somehow read peppermint into this at first–well, it seems to fit. 🙂
