First, Happy 6th anniversary to dVerse Poets!!!! On behalf of Bjorn and the rest of the pub hosts, thank you for supporting our community. Our pub doors continue to evolve and thrive with new challenges every week. We love what we do, and this virtual pub has become family and community over the years. We look forward to another year of musing, poeming and wordsmithing with you. Cheers!!!
Second, it is time for our Quadrille prompt. For this challenge we are to write a poem of exactly 44 words, including a provided word. Today, this word is FLICKER. In the light of our anniversary, may your support continue to be unflickering, though your muse may be fickle as a flickering candle. (smiles)
Make it a slow dance verb, or steady adjective. Nail down a tiny movement noun. Whatever form your word takes, your poem needs to contain some semblance of the word FLICKER and be exactly 44 words long, not including the title. Here’s some more inspiration:
This is my poker face.
Do I need say any more?
You must be able to feel it coming.
Anticipate that first subtle flicker
of recognition perhaps?
But there it goes and maybe
you were not ready for it.
Not a flicker.
