Just Plain Silly
I can no longer cut through your noise Tired of trying Exhausted from effort Frustrated from failing This is just silly Time to terminate and leave behind the fruitless failures of this Herculean task so it may cease to be and rest in peace Christine Bolton - Poetry for Healing ©
Lillian is hosting Monday Quadrille at D’Verse Poets and has prompted us with “Silly”. Thank you Lillian for helping lighten up my somewhat moody poem to fit tonight’s challenge!
A Quadrille is a poem of exactly 44 words, excluding the title

Wow, Christine!!! So powerful!! There does come a time when things really do become silly and stupid and the time long past when things should have ended!! Loved this!!! Bellissimo, Christine, Bellissimo!!
I swear you are my number 1 fan Chuck! Thank you as always my friend ☺️💕
Well, Christine, that’s a good thing, isn’t it?? I like that idea!! I love your Daily Haiku and this one and some of the others like it. Don’t know if this is reality or just a conjuring?? Fabulous, either way. Hope you have a great week and stay safe, My Dear!!!
You too Chuck 🥰
You went in a completely different direction with this prompt, than most others but it works very well
Ah yes…..sometimes it is so hard to quit the trying, realizing “this is just plain silly.”
An excellent take on the prompt!
PS; LOVE the photo!
One of your Herculean Labors… you’ll always be a legend in my eyes 😉
Lol 😂 We were both mythical this week!
Good connection – I didn’t even think about that! 😀 What’s on for next week??
Hmmmm …. we’ll figure it out! 🙂👍
I might post about confusing love
Letting go when we are supposed to, very difficult to get the timing right
I like the use of alliteration to make the point, Christine: ‘tired of trying’. ‘frustrated from failing’, ‘time to terminate and ‘fruitless failures’ to name a few. It is a Herculean task, but a relief when it’s done.
Thank you Kim! 🙂 Alliteration can be fun!
lovely alliteration, fruitless failures!
It can be quite silly to continue in such a situation! Well said, Christine. 🙂❤️
Sometimes it is us who are being silly and not the situation 😦 Thanks Sadje! 🥰
Indeed! You are welcome. 🙂
Oops sorry! I meant to say Punam, not Sadje 🤭💕
No worries. 😄💞
Love the image.
Thanks Sadje 🙂💕
I like the description of failing as being exhausted and frustrated.
Thanks Frank! 🙂
