I saw her often

the child we never had

his eyes

my nose

hair mix of light/dark

then again as doppelgänger

of our youth

today, now with child

of own in tow

I peer to see which

traits run strongest

in the little one

A quadrille is a 44 word poem. D’verse poets pub hosts quadrille challenges on second Mondays that focus on a particular word as theme. I like writing quadrilles, by times, as these can be free verse. Sorta po.etic flash fiction.
