dVerse — Quadrille 164 — Through


parakeet in flight, photo by Arunachala

Colors glide in green and blue,
flashing red, orange, yellow hues
indigos, violets elemental dance
wings and fins navigate through.

Whether feathers in cloud-mist breeze
or wet fin wiggles in prism seas
each adjusts, motility’s must,
comporting themselves with ease;

flocking, schooling, living rainbows.

      Thanks much, Bjorn. I love watching birds in flight, and I’ve recently started watching a youtube channel, “Ohio Fish Rescue,” that has so many amazing rainbow fish they’ve rescued along the way.

    Lisa, your quadrille is as colourful as a parakeet or a fish! I love the sounds created by the rhymes, and especially the ‘wet fin wiggles in prism seas’.

    Impeccable rhythm, like a syncopated school of fish. I can picture well from your words. I’m a huge fan of the rhythm you create in this one.

  20. Beautiful words and images. I’ve seen a fair amount of photos of gorgeous exotic birds. I forgot that equal beauty exits in the oceans too. Thanks for sharing. 🤓
