dVerse — two crystalline couplets

Image result for cat at my elbow meow
silent miaou

Spoiled cats miaou at elbows for pets;
Spring peepers peep in closing distance.

No graphics on the next one.


Peppermint-oil-diffused mist drifts and
finds origins in Spring’s fresh breeze.



I decided to use the crystalline poetry form. Each couplet stands alone.

  1. Wild chives and mustard plants trumps peppermint for the olfactory prize. Our cat was put down years ago,, and your first line makes me pine for a gato.

    1. This past fall it had been about 20 years since I had any cats. I had my dog Chauncey from 2004-2016. After retiring in 2018 I started volunteering at a cat rescue with my younger son and his wife. It wasn’t long before Mlady (then her name was Crumpet) chose me; then a few months later, Dotty (then her name was Elphaba) charmed me. My house has become a home again ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. Aw, I didn’t know you were a frog fan 🙂 Guess what? I finished the collage of the dream I had with George in it today. I will be posting soon. Interested in hearing your impressions on it.

  3. This sounds like the tree frogs we hear at the end of summer here, a pleasant nighttime sound. At my last home, I planted peppermint by my front door, thinking I would enjoy the fragrance. I did not realize it was extremely invasive and it quickly took over my flower bed! Thanks for the write. I enjoyed.

    1. Glad you connected with the poems. Yes, anything in the mint family goes ga-ga from what I’ve seen of it. I keep it in containers but even then it escapes! Thank you, Beverly, hope you are settling in to your new place.


  4. I enjoyed your crystalline couplets, Lisa, and I’ll be making a cup of mint tea to celebrate the second one! Mojo is outside enjoying the fresh spring breeze this morning – I’m inside trying to keep warm in a blanket. 🙂
