Why? a reverse #quadrille

Well, I do mean to smile about water;
the solution was never ‘You oughta
take more than one glass!’
say not
if you really did not want
to know?
Rewind the tape, please
fast-forward to where
you lose
flat on your ass!

I must be a glutton for punishment…

Tonight, Lisa is hosting dVerse Poetics, and has asked us to reverse a poem. She has provided a link to an excellent video explaining how to do this. I did not want to ruin anyone else’s poem, so I decided to try and reverse my quadrille from yesterday, and arrived at what I think is a logical conclusion!

I think Johnny Cash says it so much more eloquently than me though…

  1. “Cool h20…if you just promise you’ve come unwound.”

    Love this, dear.

    The reversal of water to spirits from spirits to water…top notch.
    I gave up all sodas and caffeine (excepting two cups of coffee upon waking) a few years back and I will never go back. When I need a pick me up and crave sugar or caffeine, I tell myself, “drink one quart of water and then you can do whatever you want.” And, you know what I find? The cravings disappear. Hydrogen and 2 oxygens? Magic.

    1. Thank you so much Casey! I don’t know how this comment ended up in my spam – but I do apologise for the delay in replying! I am going to try your water method…

  2. I love the poignancy with which you have flipped the meaning of your quadrille, Ingrid! A fresh perspective on the prompt 💝💝

  3. A flipped quadrille! Your poem in reverse made me smile, Ingrid. 😊 I wonder what the outcome would have been if He had changed wine to water.
