Go (A Quadrille)

Go steal the colors from a sunset
and paint your room in opulent shades.

Coax the storm clouds into the bath,
and wash them with iridescent soaps
until they no longer grumble.

Catch the stars that have fallen
and welcome them back to Earth.


This is my first time writing for a dVerse prompt. The goal was to write a quadrille (a 44 word poem) using the prompt word “go”. I enjoyed trying out this style of poetry and look forward to utilizing it more often.

Thank you for reading!
