Cloud quadrille I for dVerse.

She beat the egg white
Into great clouds
That tasted of nothing,
As if their substance
insubstantial
Was a mere net
To capture the air
As if air was a thing
That could be captured
As if clouds could be
Held on a spoon.

Kim is living in Norfolk, where the skies are big, and they know a lot about clouds. She’s chosen “cloud” as today’s dVerse quadrille word. It’s such a very rich word, I’ve numbered this as number one, because I know there is more to come! Check out the dVerse site if you don’t know it – friendly and poetic!

  1. This is delightful! I love the repeated “As if”. I used that once in a very different quadrille. When you only have 44 words to work with, it’s hard to allow words to repeat, but sometimes that’s what makes the poem.
