Saturday night (2)

Arms flicker and flash

the refrigerator gleams

memories spin and sway the kitchen floor

essence of adolescence

sparks lunges and leaps

tuned to infectious beats 

she’s returned from the past

on a ribbon of guileless joy

and her future self nods 

a spritely reunion.

I learned that the word for this week’s quadrille for DVerse is ‘flicker’ after having posted a haiku featuring a ‘flicker-flash’. So I decided to expand the haiku into this 44-word quadrille.

  1. You have made the ‘essence of adolescence’ sound quote delightful here…and sometimes it is…although that essence can sometimes have a less appealing aspect…at least with my teenage son it can! Oh well, there are bound to be bumps on the road to maturity

  2. I get the sense that it’s an older person rekindling their youth. I may be off, but I still like what you’ve done with this. My favorite has to be:
    she’s returned from the past
    on a ribbon of guileless joy
    and her future self nods
    a spritely reunion.

  3. I admire the sense of resurgence ~ This is my favorite part:

    a ribbon of guileless joy

    and her future self nods

    a spritely reunion.

    Thank you for being part of our journey Janice ~ Cheers!!!
