this moment

For those who would like to try to brave the challenge of writing one using all the words we’ve offered so far for Quadrille, here they are:

dance, lull, bubble, grin, melt, shimmer, twist, skip, green, breeze, spill, rose, journey, jar, leaves, open, shadow, cloud, spark, cue, breath(e), scar, curl, whisper, dawn, ghost, giggle, spring, balloon, drizzle, still, echo, sound, storm, pepper.


pepper storm ghost(s) cue bubble-spill(s) upon open green(s)

giggle-drizzle(s) shimmer breez(y) still(ness)

leaving me twist(ed) (a)jar


dawn’s journey rose to curl a spring of whisper(ing) echoes

i grin


skip that lull




breath(e) scar(red) and shadow(ed)-sound

melt clouded balloon sparks alone

    36 words, so far, a real challenge to bring cohesion to the quadrille, though I love the staccato-splatter style of this one. I dig those /pepper storm ghosts/ for sure.
