Love Wins – Quadrille

Jan 27, 2021 | dVerse | 10 comments

Today’s prompt comes from dVerse. Here are the rules for the Quadrille:

Today’s challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to write a quadrille poem. If you’re new to dVerse or the quadrille, it’s simply a poem of 44 words (excluding the title.) You MUST use the word “way” in your poem.

To say, I’d lost my way,
minimizes the dark bowels
 to where I’d strayed.

All light had fled the scene,
hiding in forests deep
within the minds of fiends.

Yet, His song surfs the winds
melodies of hope, and
promises penned.

Love wins…

    There are those really dark places…
    your poem made me think of Psalm 23:4…

    “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…”

    • thehermitcreative

      Yes, it was exactly a time as in Psalm 23! There are those dark times, but there is always something to hope for.

    “His song surfs the wind” — to find us, lift us, out into the light again. I loved the lyrical quality to this psalm of promises kept, hope proffered, as “love wins”! Glad to have read this last thing before bed. 🙏🙏

      Thank you so much, Dora! His promise are what keep us going. Through good times and the dark times.
