“A Yellow Daffodil” Cinquain Series

daffodil found on my walk today.
daffodil grows
static in a wet field
prairie swamp grasses undulate 

nature revives
fresh shoots waiting to rise
leaves burst forth in celebration

breathe deep
the scents and sounds
of birdsong serenades 
white pear blossoms ready to burst
just let go...

An almost perfect cinquain series (I had to add one word to make it 44 words) for Dverse Poets Quadrille #151, with Mish as the host. The word to include was static. I took poetic liberty with a bit of rhyming…

Here’s how to join in:

  • Write a 44 word poem sans title including the word “static” and post it on your blog or website.
  • Enter your name and direct link to your poem in Mr. Linky.
  • Follow the links to other poets. Read, comment and come back later as the prompt is open all week.
  • Provide a link to dVerse so others can find us too.
  • Drop in to say hello in our discussion below.
  • Have fun!

  1. This is lovely. I like the way you remind us of all the movement of Spring, even beneath the static daffodil. Thanks for joining in.


  2. This had a lovely flow, Colleen. I loved the undulating prairie grass.

    You will like an upcoming dVerse prompt (not one from me). 😏


  3. Interesting where a single bulb will shine.
    I thought the squirrels had eaten some of my bulbs by the base of one of my trees. But some bloomed and an odd one that I hadn’t planted along another border area… maybe that was the squirrels work too? 💖
