If you had asked

I never thought

I would be the one

To celebrate your leaving

And yet…

Each year about this time

I remember clearly

A film cycles in my mind

A sunny day in June

The scent of honeysuckle

Your chair empty


June 19, 2018


So get on your bike, fire up your cyclometer and write a poem of exactly 44 words (not counting your title), including the word cycle.

Here’s how to Quadrille:

– Write a poem of exactly 44 words, including the word cycle.
– Put your poem on your blog and link back to this post.

  1. The scent of honeysuckle gets to me, too Annell. It reminds me of my grandmother. And I have honeysuckle right outside the window next to my desk! Your poem has touched my heart.

    1. Yes, all those who leave an “empty chair”, in honeysuckle they are remembered. Thank you so much for your dear and kind comment.


    1. The honeysuckle is sweet and remains so, but does remind me of the spring and the sudden ending of a precious life, like the blossoms of the cherry tree. Sights, sounds and scents, are burned into place. Thanks for your comment.
