One note always shrieks
A kinda jazz
this crazy love
the sax is still good enough
to tap your foot
through Sunday brunch
with burnt toast
and Friday nights
with cheap wine
and children slamming
doors and a barking
dog who pees
Written for the dVerse quadrille prompt, where Linda asks us to write about wine.

Ha! Those last lines made me smile! 😉
My goal! Cheers! 🍷
A kinda jazz indeed. As long as it’s happy, crazy love, and perhaps just a stage of life. 😀
Yes, some stages are definitely louder than others with families! 🍷
I like the life and energy of your poem. Nice gif also.
Thanks, Lisa! ❤
You’re welcome 🙂
Crazy magic that keeps you hopping! And don’t forget the cheap wine cause that’s all we could afford. 😂 Love this poem Tricia.
Thanks, Dora! Every now and then I write realism! 😁
Thanks so much, Devon! 🍷
You are quite welcome.
I like your take on this prompt. Nicely done.
Thanks for reading! 🍷
Lol my nieces dog does that. Aptly named Sprinkles.
Oh no! 😆 My sister’s dog gets so excited she sprinkles a bit too for visitors. They are so cute though you can’t be mad long!
The video clip and your quadrille made me smile, Tricia, especially the final lines. My old dog, who sadly is no more, used to do that when he was a puppy, and the first thing he did when my husband came up to visit, when he was still in digs in London, was pee on his desert boots!
🤭 I figured the last lines would resonate with a few! Our dog is a little over one now and thankfully is much better with holding it. ❤️
I love your jazz and was dancing along in my head!
Thanks, Ingrid! 🎷
A robust vintage here…cheers!
Glad you enjoyed it, Lynn! 🎺🎷🥂
I really like this. It feels sexy and swinging. And the ending is definitely a chuckle!
Thanks so much! 💕
I posted one called apple jazz tonight because something about your poem reminded me of this old effort of mine. Thanks for the inspiration. 👃
Cool! 😎 I’m going to get caught up on my reading soon!
Delightful! Jazz is so like that- a lot going on at once.
Yes, and loud! Enjoyed your prompt, Linda! 💝
Here’s to the wine, snd jazz— here’s to you!
🥂 Thanks, Rob!
A very entertaining poem with it’s playful tone. It made me think about how love and life are pretty jazzy…never know what will happen next!
True! It keeps us swinging! 😎🎷
