Kim is hosting this week’s quadrille at dVerse Poetics and our challenge is “Iā€™d like you to take any meaning, form or compound of the word keep, and write a poem of exactly 44 words (not counting your title), including the prompt word.

Dragon’s Keep

Shining stars of diamonds
sparkles glint off walls of gold
water runs in wide rivulets
the sound like clinking coins
changing hands

The walls are slick with damp
dank smells burn the eyes
the shadows lengthen
dark and deep
here within the dragon’s keep

word count 44

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP

  1. I like the contrast between the shining stars of diamonds, the sparkle and water like clinking coins in the first stanza, and the dampness, dankness and darkness of the second stanza. If I had any treasure worth protecting, Iā€™d trust a dragon to guard it well.
