Déjà Vu Blues

Déjà vu
I’ve answered this email question before
while reading this Quadrille
I’m sure of it
The memory uncanny
The feeling eerie

I think I need
a tad bit of something
to spice things up

Something brand new
to squelch these déjà vu blues


Mish is running the bar at dVerse Poets Pub today and is calling for spicy Quadrilles. As I read another poet’s Quadrille, while multi-tasking and answering a work email, I had the strangest sensation of déjà vu. So while it would have been easy to write a food-related Quadrille about chili or Texas Skillet Dinner or steak on the Traeger, I decided to go a different direction.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. Love the title and I know that feeling so well. Sometimes it feels like I’m writing the same thing, or using the same words, over and over. BTW, I really like the picture of you at the top of this page–lovely.

  2. Ha! I am with you, I was sure we did this. I checked back and dVerse did “Pepper” not long ago and another of my prompts did spice. I don’t know how much wider my repertoire of spice-inspired poems will stretch. Fun read!
