Impossible Possible

Ocean roared with jagged teeth

Sand dunes devoured by hurricane waves

as the sirens’ song wailed from out of the gale

Hatteras Lighthouse sat in peril

Lets save the light”

Anything one can envision is possible

On tracks of steel they moved it back

This is Quadrille Monday with De Jackson at d’Verse. The prompt today is to write a Quadrille of exactly 44 words using any form of the word possible! I am writing about the historic move of the Hatteras Lighthouse away from the water’s edge on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The photo above was taken years ago when we visited there, before it was moved.

  1. I really, really love this Dwight. Seems we both went with the current and provided some ocean imagery in our poems. The beginning lines are quite a hook. Such an enjoyable piece. Beautiful work, as always. Also, that photo is beautifully haunting. It looks isolated with the faded coloring.

  2. Great tale to invoke the meaning of Possibility! I’ve marveled the few times I’ve been on the road in a town and seen an actual house being moved! You’re right….when you see that, you think anything must be possible! The first farmhouse we bought had actually been moved to our rural acreage from its original site which was turned into interstate 80 in Iowa! The plus side was we had a new basement….and the amazing thing was the leaded glass portions of the windows in the dining room had stayed intact!
