There is a little cottage somewhere (and maybe we’re there now)
in the middle of nowhere (but parenthesis) (and trees)
and in the morning, we eat pancakes
(dipped in syrup)
and in the evening, we just sit and talk
(without words) (without thought)
It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub, and Linda asks us to write a 44-word poem with the prompt word morning. Come join us!

Sounds utterly perfect!
Thanks, Linda! I enjoyed writing to this one, thanks for hosting! 💓🥞
This is EXACTLY where My Beloved Sandra and I are at, these days, TS. I drizzled syrup on the French Toast I made for dinner, so this piece really resonated. And: I’m wild for your mind-blowing parentheticals throughout. Bella!
Glad it resonated, I figured pancakes and syrup would get me a few likes! 😆
Sounds like a wonderful get-away! Yum for the pancakes!
Yes, I think my muse is hungry. 😆 Thanks, Dwight! ❣️
Ha ha… I will join you!
What a lovely scene, and the structure of your quadrille only makes it all the better.
So glad you enjoyed it, Shay! ❤️🥞❤️
This sounds like a great getaway. I wish I could join. LOL. Nicely done poem.
Thanks so much, Miss Arcadia! You’re always welcome to stop by and join me in some peaceful meditation! ❣️
Sounds like a laid-back scene that is warm and embracing.
Yes, a nice escape! Thanks, Carol! 💓
Delightful. I love the way you used the parentheses in this poem. I am not sure if this is the pural form or if I spelled it correctly. (dipped in syrup)
So fun. Like a mini-Quadrille-vacation
Thanks, Ali! This was a very spontaneous write, I wasn’t sure where it was heading till the end, so glad you enjoyed! 🥰
Isn’t it fun to let the words land where they want to go and see what happens? I love that too.
Yes, when it flows, it’s so much fun! ✨
Tricia, a vaca where nobody talks (or looks at their electronic devices) would be PERFECT. And yes, pancakes and syrup. Lots of pancakes and syrup 🙂 ❤
Thanks, Lisa! It’s funny I was thinking about adding telepathy in this at first, but then I thought, no words or thinking is better! haha! 😆❣️
EXACTLY. Give the ol tongue and noggin a break 🙂
It’s all about the heart! ❤️❤️❤️
Pure bliss! You served up just the right mix, Tricia( that too in parentheses!)!❤️
Thanks, Punam, it’s a great escape! 💓
So it is! You are welcome. ❤️
The perfect sanctuary, Tricia! I love the shape of your quadrille, and the use of surreptitious parentheses. I am lucky to live in such a cottage, surrounded by trees but, sadly, no pancakes or maple syrup.
Thanks, Kim! I’ll allow you to snag some parenthesis and pancakes from my poem this one time! 😆🥞
Perfect. Sounds heavenly.
Thanks! It’s definitely in that realm! 💓
I live in parenthesis (but no pancakes or syrup).
Well, it’s an important part of the fantasy! ❤️🥞❤️
Ha ha! Not in these parts 🙂
As long as you eat something high in carbs! ❣️
The few Buddhist retreats I’ve attended behaved exactly as you describe. Bliss!
Interesting! I bet it was, my version of heaven! ❣️
Seems to be a nice getaway, blissful.
Yes, not a bad dreamcation, but today my son starts school again so back to reality! 💞
I like the parentheses, which adds to the feeling of something hidden here, Tricia…
Thanks, Ingrid! Yes, hidden and hugged! 💓
This sounds like a perfect refuge many of us need…love the way you use paranthesises
Glad you enjoyed it Bjorn! (truly) 💓
It sounds ideal, Tricia. And you have me craving pancakes (with maple syrup). 🙂
Thanks, Merril! I think I tried keto too long and now this is where my poetry has gone! 😆
Pure bliss. 💞🌳🥞
Most welcome! 🥰
Tricia, honestly, all I can say about this poem is ~ I wish I had written this.
You’re sweet as pancakes dipped in syrup 7 times!! 💗 Thanks so much! 🥰
