Days stream drivel
like a pixelized play
on a blurry screen
Where is the Director?
did he sneak away
in the opening?
content to cast the
devil in the starring role?
or is he acting beside you?
Sometimes I hear
For the dVerse prompt where De Jackson (aka WhimsyGizmo) asks us to write a Quadrille of 44 words and include the prompt word “stream.”

Love the pixelized play-the endless stream of images so true to our lives. Enjoyed, Tricia.
This was a very stream-of-conscious write, glad it resonated! 🥰
I think the Director gives us choices…..and that’s how we get in so much trouble!
Yes, free will isn’t a walk in the park! 😅
Wow, I think I need an encore for this one. ❤ It's amazing.
Thanks so much, Lucy! 💓
Pretty swanky Sankey 👍
I should so edit that reply! 😆 Thanks!
Or you could just say those 3 words 😉
These 3 words – You are weird!
Lol!! They’re good enough.
I thought so! 😊
I’ll tone it down or leave you alone. Either way, I try to tell folks lol.
The comment section is always open for you! 😆
I’m overly talkative and have deplorable social skills. And yes, I’m weird.
The first step is admitting it. Go write some poetry!
I’ve admitted it for 43 years.
No. You called me weird and I’ve worn out my welcome here.
You are a forgiving Christian, so I’m not worried. But silence is golden!
Modern Shakespearian commentary. Life is a livestream play.
Love that “pixelated play,” especially. What a cool way to think about things found onscreen. Just wonderful.
So pleased it resonated! Thanks so much for the prompt, it was just what I needed to get me writing today! 💗
Nicely done Tricia!
Thanks, Dwight! 💗

“like a pixelized play on a blurry screen,” .. this is such a fresh and original image, Tricia 😀 I love the poignancy of this poem 💝💝
Thanks, Sanaa! It seems more poetic than calling this a matrix! 💕
Clever! I agree with Sanaa. I really like, “like a pixelized play on a blurry screen.” Creative and thought provoking at the same time.
Thanks for your feedback, Ali! Appreciate your support! 💓
I love your cinematic imagery, and the idea of the invisible, omniscient director!

“Where is the director?” As a community theatre volunteer I have yelled that more than a few times …. therefore that line made me laugh. I thoroughly enjoyed your quadrille.
That’s cool you volunteer! Thrilled you enjoyed this, Helen! 💓
It does feel like that sometimes. (K)
