Troll – Quadrille


Though ugly, colorful, tiny with spikey hair
To the little ones they bring no fear

Scattered over the living room floor
As Satuday cartoons invade my snores

In stumle from slumber my feet pay a toll
I’m face to face with those creepy trolls

For dVerse Poets Pub where the prompt is “Troll” for a quadrille..a 44 word poem invented by the members of dVerse Poets Pub. Drop in and have a read or join in. This prompt took me back to when my living roon was a huge play room, day in and day out.

      • Wow, that’s good–I never progressed to human garments 🙂 Well, okay…there were a few nightmarish Home Ec sewing class projects… 😦 The gene for spectacular seamstresses (grandma, mom) skipped me, though both my sisters inherited it. Today, I can’t even mend the split seam in butt of my pants 🙂


      • Yup, it definitely skipped you, lol! But to be fair my mom had 3 girls and she made all of our clothes. We kinda got the know how of sewing by osmosis😊


      • That is cool! I must say that, since my mom was an incredible seamstress, the dresses she made for me were perfection–‘specially the prom and pageant formals 🙂
