At dVerse Poets Pub, De aka whimsygizmo challenges poetisers to a quadrille of exactly 44 words, including a Zoom-word – or, in my case, ZooMagic

beyond the tomb

April botanic, Lilac stoutly 

opposite-budding last crisps of

relict unkempt blossom.

Easter mystic, Hare's long

soft ears alert to Full 

Maundy Moon in Libra.

ZooMagic, egg to

slick yolk to chick; cheap

cheeps creme egg; 

and Brimstone Butter-

flies past the buffalo 

currant's luminescence
