Once you were quicksilver

Jane Dougherty Writes

This quadrille is for dverse. The word to include is ‚flicker‘, and it is inspired by our little blue cat, the first of our Bordeaux cats to die, very young and unexpectedly.

Chat_noir_et_roseOnce you were quicksilver,

a shadow seen through leaves,

a flicker of sunlight,

a streak of blue, polished like sealskin,

in the tree, leaping the wall.

The last memory cuts deepest,

of your eyes, their light,

a mere flicker

to say you were leaving.
