Leap Into Love
She leaps gracefully Mimicking a dance She jumps joyfully Throwing him a glance Surprise him she does Puts him in a trance She zig-zags her way back to loyal fans Makes her final bow, bye-byes; lost his chance☹ Maybe not! It’s her!! beckoning; Romance?
A quadrille with the word leap; a poem that uses the word grace; a poem written using the invented form ‘zany zig-zag five‘ – this post is for dVerse Poets Quadrille Monday or maybe Poetic Tuesday (not sure if I can use it for both!!) and for ABC Wednesday‘s letter Z.
Quadrille: Rules of quadrille are quite simple: write a poem, or short story in 44 words (excluding the title) with the specified word; this week’s quadrille word was Leap.
Zany zig-zag five: I found this in the poetrymagnumopus blog while looking for poetry forms starting with the letter Z to use for ABC Wednesday’s letter this week. On searching some more, I found the original poem written by the inventor of this form here. Rules for this form: 5 syllable lines written in a zig-zag form that must contain movement and the words zig-zag must be mentioned; must also rhyme. For rhyming, I used the same scheme that Patricia used in her really wonderful poem – Shuffling Along.
