Chit Chat

Sit a spell and

Spill with me


‘Til all we have to till

Are recycled revelations

Composted conversations

Speak philosophy

Of fallen trees

In vacant forests

Did you hear it?

Meta my physics

Prove me wrong

Let’s put it in a

Nitty-gritty nutshell


A quirky little quadrille for dVerse. De is our host and “spill” is the word she has asked us to include in our 44 word poem. Come on over!

  1. Meta my physics… What a great phrase.

  2. Good quirky fun here! Love it!
    “Speak philosophy

    Of fallen trees” — I like this, especially.

  3. I’d love to have a lovely convo like this once in a while. 🙂

  4. Oh, Mish, I love this – it’s like a grown-up nursery rhyme!

  5. Odd, very odd. Odd enough to stop reflexive reading and to cause pause, thought, feeling. Recycled or not, it is the process of sharing that was so rich. No dogmatic, humble, yet unhesitant. Nice.

  6. SMiling I am. LOVE this! I’m so late to reading these — and in 2.5 hours will be hosting — so really really behind. Knew I had to read yours though — do love these words! 🙂

  7. I was thinking of regular chit-chats versus that of a deep engagement with each other. I really admire the philosophy of fallen trees!

  8. I love the meter and rhyme in this, Mish! Well played!

  9. Quirky is perfect for this. I love what you have done with internal rhyme. This flows (spills) so well down the page.

  10. Quirkey is wonderful regarding this poem. Meta my physics….I’m not sure about the “recycled” comment but I find this absolutely delightful. How wonderful it would be have such a conversation!

  11. Sitting a while in the outdoors – I really rnjoyed the idea of our words being recycled, composted by Nature.

  12. Very witty. I like the way you’ve taken that old philosophical conundrum and composted it into something that makes me smile.

  13. Rosemary Nissen-Wade

    Ha ha, clever.

  14. Would love to have a conversation like this someday! Sweet and funny.
