“Poetic Spell-Craft”: Quadrille

The dVerse Poet’s Pub Challenge:

“Sanaa here, aka adashofsunny, and once again it’s time for my favorite of all prompts, the Quadrille. This feisty little poem is an invention of our own design: precisely 44 words (not counting the title) including the word that we provide.”

Today, I’d like you to ponder upon the word “Spell.”

Quadrille #154: dVerse
  • Carve us a poem out of the word “Spell,” and make it precisely 44 words long, not counting the title of course.
  • Post the poem on your own blog and link it up via Mr. Linky below. Then partake of all the incredible poems conjured in the blogosphere.
  • The Quadrille is open all week, so be sure to come back and read (and write) some more!

Poetic Spell-Craft

poetry is magic
our spells transform soul truths
often scrawled in our youth
poetic psalms

weave magic every day
poems heal and restore
sacred charms we adore
poems are spells

our manifestations
create word enchantments
like spoken commandments
set intentions...

speak your truth poetically
