Hot and Cold – A Quadrille Poem

Hot and Cold

Today I am trying a poetry form called quadrille (44 words). The prompt is “gather”. My poem is called “Hot and Cold”. I am joining Dverse – Poets Pub.

Springtime in the country. After a big snowstorm last weekend we had beautiful sunshine. Glorious time.  We are still waiting for the snow to melt but hopefully not too quickly so we don’t have floods.

My post is short and sweet today.

Hot and Cold

To gather – the intent
All the family together

But grandma got sick
There were no hugs for her

Kids made meals
Grandkids made grandma laugh

She watched as they played in sun and snow
A mixture of hot and cold
Exactly how grandma felt

hot and cold

“See! The winter is past;
    the rains are over and gone.
 Flowers appear on the earth;
    the season of singing has come (Song of Solomon 2:11-12, NIV).”

    1. Mary,
      You found me. I will go and find your poem on line. Thanks. Haven’t written in poetry form for awhile. I found this so much fun.
      Thanks for the referral.

    1. Jilly,
      Not sure if that’s the right name. 🙂 But thank you so much. I took the photo before the prompt and remembered I had taken it. It fit in so well.

    1. Frank,
      It was me and my frustration was high but I also thanked God that everyone was there having fun and I got to enjoy my family. They did all the work.

  1. So glad to see you here, Janis! Oh yes….grandma and Mother Nature (or or those really sometimes one and the same?) feeling hot and cold. 🙂 I enjoyed this very much! Love the photo!

I love to connect with you.
