dVerse — quadrille — M’Lady


De is the host of dVerse today. De says:

Whether you use it as a noun, verb, adjective or adverb (she said, spikily), just be sure your poem of 44 words includes some form of the word spike.

Hopefully I’m not being too mysterious, but I hope the picture tells the tale. I have a new furbaby, and her name is Crumpet. She was adopted from the cat shelter I volunteer with.


Twinkling eyes,

she of luxurious fur.

I, eyed, mesmerized;

hoolas of hoops jumped;

time stamped.

Then her temp spiked;

broke the date.

Steroid shot; then – wait.

This morning, the yesser yessed

to her fiddle fitness .

The chariot and chauffeur brought

m’lady to the castle.

      1. We have one cat. She’s a black cat. Nobody wanted her because she’s bad luck… I haven’t seen a mouse since she moved in. Allergy shots are completely worth our Pepper. Everyone needs a little spice in their life, even if it makes them sneeze. Sneezes are a part of life with a cat around here. I hope she is well, and all will be well, and every manner of thing shall be well. (Julian of Norwich must have had a cat)

  1. I’m so glad she’s back fit and healthy, Jade. I went through a similar thing with Mojo recently. I once had a cat called Muffin – we could have had a Muffin and Crumpet tea party! Crumpet is a sweet little cat.

    1. She is all fur and bones, very little flesh right now. She also is hiding out now that I moved her food dish 😦 I had no idea it would traumatize her. She has been through a rough life in her 2 short years.
