dVerse Poets – Quadrille

Slip into a dream with me

Of oceans blue and quiet seas

The calmness will overwhelm

Waves rocking you into a realm

Of peace and distance from the fray

When we wish the world could be this way

Without the knowledge of our decay.



Lumberjack Contest

The lumberjack competitors started to disperse, quickly fighting through squads of onlookers to join their favorite event. The log float contest outcome depended on the river’s current and even the most unctuous of competitors didn’t look ahead with confidence to the outcome. However, the crowd would never tire of seeing the swarthy contestants knocked off their rolling feet, doused. Many layers of thick wood were bonded on the targets for the contest of axe throwing. The lumberjacks yelled “yeet” as they threw, meaning to add accuracy to their powerful arm strength.
