Quatrain Riddles

(1/151) > >>

witt:
I would like to revive a thread that we had here once. I always thought that it inspired some really great poems.
The object: You are given a word. You write a quatrain that contains the essence of that word without actually using it.
You may use any format or pattern. The only constant is that the poem must be done in only four lines. You may use any meter, rhyme scheme, or free verse. After you put in your poem, you choose the succeeding word for the next participant.

Example:

Understanding

Empathy rolls off the fingers
Easier than the tongue.
Kind words are good words,
But the touch forever lingers.

Next: Future

cafeRg:
Future

one day we are cranking a car
the next we are beeping a friend
mother nature competes for attention
one more cuppa joe before I start

next: radio


witt:
Radio:

Waves zipping through the air
A technological wonder
Listening to talk spewing there
Till FCC catches a blunder.

Next:
Benefit

cafeRg:
Benefit:

'tis a time for giving
what shall one be rewarded
if one looks for rewards
what have you gave then?

Next:
adroitness

Lady SunShine:
Adroitness

Rainbows of cotton woven, between her finger tips
Never once, did she let them slip
Amazing finished objects of art
Tatting to the beat of her heart

Next:
Solutions
had to do it Witt
