True Story

I bustled away
from table today,
confronting a matter of mind…
Whatever forgot
I sought on the spot,
relaxing and tea undermined.

On later return
the table emerged,
my hunger and thirst unprepared…
Forsaken repast
and teatime had passed.
So ghostly, I toasted despair!

Quite a Quadrille for Kim’s “ghost” prompt at
Join us! It’s amazing what you can do with 44 words!

  1. You’re not kidding it’s amazing what you can do with 44 words! And I mean you, Crystal. Love everything about this (except missing tea time, or a tee time for that matter!) The meter and rhythm are solid and the rhyme works to tell the tale.


  2. I spoke your quadrille loud and thought, I was longing for a good and relaxed tea time, maybe with some delicious toast…but then realized, my idea was just a ghost.
    Oh, could despair taste like bitter-sweet orange marmalade on my toast…

    Very fine poem and beautiful sound,
    Many greetings from the Karfunkel Fairy from Germany
