Mighty Rufous – a Quadrille

I couldn’t resist a revisit to the dragon quadrille post, it’s all just so much fun, so for your consideration, another mighty tiny poem

for Quadrille Monday on dVerse Poets

Just pen us a poem of precisely 44 words, not counting the title, and using some form of the word dragon. Then drag your cursor on over to visit some of the fieriest poets on the ’net. And as the week drags on, we’re not done yet! The Quadrille prompt is up all week, and multiple posts (perhaps two-headed beasties?) are welcome. And hey, drop us a hello in the comments below. Maybe let me know who’s your favorite dragon? (Game of Thrones? Tolkien? Rowling? Or maybe Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon?)

Mighty Rufous

a tiny scarlet hummingbird
as fierce as any dragon
drinking sweet nectar
from a trumpet flower flagon
it flitters to and fro
wings just a blur to see
passing beauty, fragile joy
a dream of what might be
for all who would fly free

word count 44

Inspired by a Rufous hummingbird

Til next time ~Peace JPP
